My child attended SJHS last year and after much deliberation, we pulled her out and sent her to the local catholic school. my child was bullied and the administration did NOTHING about it. However, with the schools good reputation, we worried that a small catholic school would not measure up. I have never been so wrong in my life. At All Saints, my child is receiving a far superior education and the kindness of the students and staff exceeded my expectations. As non-catholics, we were also concerned, but we were welcomed with open arms. If your child is unhappy or you question the academics at SJHS, give ALS a try. BEST decision we ever made!!!

Sycamore is probably the best fit for your child. All the comments that say the teachers are unhelpful, are extremely false. I am a current student of Sycamore Junior High. They give out extensive activities. Not just for sports, but for music they have SSC (Sycamore Singing Company) which is a show choir that is amazing. They have clubs such as BSU (Black Student Union) where you can learn about African American History more extensively. The activities help kids with social interaction and its amazing! No matter what you are interested in there is a spot for you at Sycamore! I suggest if you're moving somewhere in Cincinnati, then I suggest you move to Sycamore District.

We are so incredibly fortunate that our daughter is in the Sycamore School District. She currently attends the Junior High and LOVES it. Sycamore has incredible teachers and administration. Before our family moved to Cincinnati 6 years ago, I made a few calls to try to determine which district would be best for our child - Sycamore was at the top of the list. We visited the elementary school she went on to attend, Montgomery, and were thrilled about this opportunity for her. She is thriving academically, socially and emotionally, thanks to all! We aren't equally impressed with Cincinnati, but would not even consider relocating until after our daughter has completed her Sycamore experience.

SJH has a wide range of activities for all students...sports and clubs of a vide variety. The Sycamore school distrist is in direct competition with many of the local schools for both atheltics and academics. They are doing a very excellent job keeping up with the competition and will most likely continue to do so in the coming years!

This school is an excellent transition school, helping students make the big move from middle school to high school.There are great courses available, including semester and quarter courses to help students find their interests, so that they can continue with those in high school. There are also a wide range of clubs and actitivites to join, and the school prides itself on having 'something for everyone.'From Science Club to Latin Club to Beta Club,and from Cross Country to Quiz Team to Wrestlerettes, SJH has it all.The art program is also very good; seventh graders are required to take a semester of art, and if they display a talent or enthusiasm for art, are recommended to continue to Art 8.In the music department, Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Piano, Guitar, and Music History are just a few of the music options.They do not have to play an instrument, but can take an academic music course.

The Sycamore Junior High is an outstanding school in all aspects. Academically it offers three tracks: accelerated, academic and regular. It has an outstanding music program, including choir, orchestra and band. It also has many clubs, and special activities. Parents are very involved, and welcomed.

Sycamore Junior High is good in academics but it has been declining very fast the last couple years. It does not offer a great athletics board. The main problem for this school is the principal is not caring. He is not supportive to the students. Sycamore Junior High will be an average school after about a year. For moving parents, I suggest Turpin High School ( Forest Hills School district ) where it is improving a lot the last couple of years. Turpin will surpass the former greatness of Sycamore Junior High.

This school has teachers who does not care about the students. This school always keeps my son miserable and not wanting to go to school. This school's discipline is not good enough. The principal here seems to care more about his career than his students. This school does not have a lot of fun activities for my son. We moved to Sycamore School District from Forest Hills School District because of everyone else's good comments about this school. I completely disagree with those comments. This school seems to get worse every year. I wish to end my son's horrible year and move back to Forest Hills.

This SChool is like no other! The staff is willing to go out of their way to make sure the students have the best they possibly can have. Their Academics are very high-one student made it to the National math competition-thanks to the help of the staff. The groups and teams, both in academics and sports are usually in the top three places. the music program is OUTSTANDING. for example-the school did a BROADWAY MUSICAL-at the same level as the broadway performers themselves! The 7th and 8th grade Chorale got invited to perform a highly difficult piece at the Carnegie Hall in New York City. You can see for yourselves that Sycamore Junior High School is a school like no other.

This school is a wonderful environment for children to learn. The teachers are VERY caring and concerned about their kids. The administration maintains a balance of discipline and caring that comes only through experience. The teachers that are there are there because they love what they do. Kids in the middle MAY get lost if they are not involved in anything just by nature of the number of students. However, there is plenty to do if they are interested. Additionally, the school makes it a point to get to know the new students.

This is a top-notch school with a dedicated staff and administration.Our children are receiving a quality education in an environment that makes it exciting for them to learn.

The administration is uncaring and in many cases a hinderance to students learning. The principal seems to be more interested in his career than in the welfare of students.
