I personally attended John Early my 5th-7th grade year. I loved it ! The teachers were wonderful and they kept the students highly engaged in academics, sports and out of school activities. I was a member of the Volleyball team, cheerleading team and the Forensics team. I highly recommend parents to enroll their children into this awesome school!
