I was a student at Jones JR high in the 70s, and I really loved it there. Fast forward to last year and my son's Dublin district Middle School track team had a dual meet vs Jones. I noticed that many of the Jones athletes were special needs kids. I knew a Jones mom that was there at the meet and she told me a couple of the coaches were Intervention Specialists and they encourage all their kids to participate. It was a beautiful thing to watch and the "typical" kids made a point of cheering on all their team mates with equal enthusiasm. It made me proud to be a "old" Jones alumni and put our Dublin team to shame in sportsmanship. Great school, great community.
I want to congratulate each student for spending their time learning, loving each other and not wasting energy on any negative rubbish. When I see you, I feel hope for the world. Please please do not change. I will always remember you as kind, welcoming, smart and caring. Well done!
Overall, the teaching and guidance is excellent. A question comes up for us about how challenging the curriculum is, since our child moved from a private school where that child struggled to keep up. At Jones, the child excelled. It may have just been a good fit, but it left us wondering, nonetheless. Several of the teachers have been truly outstanding. There is no diversity at the school - if this is a value for you, then this is not your school. On the other hand, all the families have high expectations, and offer great support. Overall, very good experience.
