There are a few good ones who seem to genuinely care. I'd say its about 1/2.

Dont know, teachers dont all keep up on online assignment listings so if your child does not bring work home, you usually are unaware until its too late

Yeah! Students are completely on their own....and not in a good way. Being the only middle school in town, you kind of have no choice but to be persistent. This however dose not mean they are getting a quality education. NOT by a long shot.

You need to give respect to get respect and you need to earn that respect. The students DO NOT respect the Principal (Hartey) and for good reason. The parents dont really respect him either. Excuses and run arounds may get someone by their first year working at a school but after awhile, everyone is sick of it.

Not really with the issue of over the top self-responsibility on the students and no responsibility of the teachers or staff, it kind of creates an environment of "everyone out for themselves" no community feel or team work. The teachers and staff (especially Principal Hartey) seem to want to create a "school against parent" atmosphere which is very frustrating to parents who actually care about their child's academic progress.

Kind of, the main issue with JMS is that they are attempting to build self-reliance and responsibility. However it is brought to the extreme that it creates an environment where the Principal and the lazy teachers simply remain hands off and do not communicate. So in essence, the children and parents are 100% responsible, teachers and Principal 0%.

Principal Hartey is pretty lazy. Any time there are issues with a teacher he only defends and makes excuses, never address the issues.

My children loved attending JMS. I found it to be a positive, fun, safe learning environment.

6th grader so we are new. 1 or 2 good teachers in the Sigma House but the rest are either too new or too lazy. I try to contact them to find out what we can do at home to help with no reply or eye rolls. They really do not seem to want to work with child or parents or go the extra mile. Do they even want the kids to do well? Idk.

My child, for trying so hard despite the lack of support and teaching that goes on there.
