Small town feel with a quality education, is what you can expect at JCMS. The teacher/student ratio is conducive to a sound learning environment. This school also heavily supports strong parental presence. The teachers and staff go out of their way to make themselves available to address concerns of parents, and that means a lot to me.

your girls athletic programs are wonderful! advanced classes for advanced students need to be offered! test scores seem to begin to slide around the 5th grade. and extre help, tutoring, ect...should be offered for those who need it. this a small community with excellent pupil/student ratios and a lot of potential, lets try harder to acheive it!
