Some staff members are helpful but for the most part they're rude and condescending. Doesn't seem like a good school for kids with emotional and/or learning difficulties.

This was an awesome school when I went there 30+ years ago. Now that my daughter goes here is am very happy to see that the school has kept many traditions and keep learning fun for the kids.

My son started here in second grade and was way behind grade level due to a learning disability. In third grade he was reading at a kindergarden level buy by the end of 4th grade he was reading at a 9th grade level. The teachers here, the principal and educational aides at John Clem are outstanding. They worked with my son and I on a plan to get him where he needed to be education wise and by the end of 5th grade there they were very impressed. The principal is very experienced and gets right not he kids level while maintaing that she is authority but makes them feel secure, discipline is never over the top unlike his previous school where he was suspended in kindergarden.

Quality of academic programs: the math curriculum is circular, I don't believe it is effective at all. The reading program is nice, gives them incentives, although it doesn't push them to challenge themselves beyond their level. Availability of Music, etc..the only thing they offer is music, in 4th grade only. We came to John Clem the middle of last year from a private school and I was beyond unimpressed. The principal this year is much better, although I feel all of the staff members are very patronizing toward parents with concerns instead of helpful. The 4th grade teaching staff would be the exception. Parental involvment was non-existent. The academic awards program had 3 or so parents there. It doesnt help that you have to pay to have a voice in what happens per PTO. Horrible dress guidelines,no structure. Low test scores.

My daughter attended John Clem for K-2 and then transferred to Hazelwood for 3rd. John Clem is by far the best and we are looking to move during the summer back to the district. They are very family oriented and show genuine care for the children. With any luck, we will be back for 4th.
