Please pay no attention to the negative remarks on here. If you are reading this, then you are considering a school for your child who is the most important person or people in your life I know. I have a child here and had another who came through this wonderful school. Every teacher that my children have had have been caring, respectful,as well as challenging for them. They provoke young minds to think to their fullest potential. If some parent has had a problem, I assure you that parent does not want their child challenged, and most likely will be one of those who will never be happy and likes to complain. The principal is nothing but a thoughtful gentlemen who cares about the faculty and students. I hope this helps to ease your minds that this is truly the best school in Wilson county.
I moved to Mt. Juliet because I always heard their schools were better than Metro. My daughter had a problem in the 3rd grade and she called and needed me and I had forgotten I had let someone borrow my car, so it was 30 minutes before I could get there and I was in a panic. Instead of being understanding and calm and realizing he was dealing with a mother that was very, very concerned about her child, the prinicpal of Mt. Juliet Elementary told me that maybe MJE wasn't the right school for my child. He lost the little bit of respect I had for him that day and he'll never have my respect again. The teahcers on the other hand (for the most part) are EXCELLENT. Her 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Walker hs been amazing. I never want to have to deal with Mr. Brown again. I think he is a sorry excuse for an principal.
I would give a lower score if possible. I moved to Wilson Co. just to get my child out of another county school. It has not even been one nine week period and I am withdrawing my child from Mt Juliet Elem. I was surprised to have so many problems so early into the school year. I would say 30% of the faculty is average, while the other 70% need to make improvements on how they communicate with children and parents.
Wonderful learning environment with caring teaches who will push your children to succeed. Library and Music programs could improve but overall 'core' subjects are well covered. Test scores continue to prove this is one of the better elementary schools in the area.
Wonderful school filled with excellent caring teachers! No problems here...
I would rate lower if I could. There has been an utter lack of compassion and understanding from the school. The teacher won't answer questions I write to her, the administration is rude and the system completely inadequate for dealing with a bright child. Run. Run away as fast as you can.
Year after year my child has a great teacher who motivates kids to excel to their best. It is a great school with a great faculty team.
As a substitute at MJE, I was not impressed with the attitudes of many staff members and felt like overall a lot more compassion and understanding for the students was needed. The librarian makes coming to the library as much fun for the children as being forced to eat liver and onions, and while many teachers and staff are good at their jobs, many are not, at least in my opinion. I am grateful my children are zoned elsewhere.
MJE is a great school. Their programs are very organized and the facilities are clean. Great PTO.
I love this school! I am so glad that we moved to this school district!
There are several programs within the school that are family has been able to take advantage of. We are at the end of elementary school with our last two children and we feel lucky to have our children in a nurturing environment. Like any school there are a couple of teachers that should not be with little kids, but we are talking about 2 out of all the staff. Almost all the teachers help the students to achieve their best and become a member of your family. They are involved in their students lives and care about their future. Mr. Brown gives everything he has and more every year he is principal of the school. The teachers live by his example. My children feel safe and comfortable at school and know that if there is a problem we can work together to solve it.
Great school, we actually moved over the summer to get my son in here!
