the principal is supportive and nice, even when dishing out discipline. the vice principal, however, is horrible. she screams and has this way of getting in your personal space that is very unnerving. also, to cope with crowded hallways, they came up with a rule that one could only walk in a certain direction through the hallway. the school is basically a big square, you see. anyway, they only give you three minutes inbetween classes, and even if your next class was right next door to your first one, if it was in the 'wrong direction' you had to walk completely around, through the neighboring hallway to get to your classroom. pretty backwards, huh? needless to say i was almost always late...

My son is an 8th grader this year and is much happier with the school atmosphere now that the attendance is down to a manageable level. Last year the school was extremely overcrowded. As a result of the downsizing, he is enjoying the 'small town' school spirit at MJH. He is a Pre-AP student and finds the teachers challenging, interesting and supportive. Unfortunately, MJH continues to be the 'red-headed step child' of AISD with regards to athletics and equipment provided. If MJH were provided equivalent equipment as the other Jr. High's in the district (Nolan Ryan, Alvin Jr. High & Fairview Jr. High) I would have rated the school a 5.

The school is great the teachers are wonderful when it comes to the students. The only problem I have is the over crow[d]ing and the children have to carry their book with them from class to class. For my daughter that is 3 bags total, that is a lot to keep up with. The students cannot use the lockers because we have more students than lockers.

My daughter attends Manvel Jr.High overall all the teachers are very kind and concern about thier students they keep you informed only if you stay in touch with them. School could use a makeover.

My son is in the 8th grade. So far this has been good environment for him. He seems to really enjoy the teachers and classes, especially Mr. Murphy and Mr. Ford. Thanks for your positive attitude towards the students.

My son is in 7th grade at MJH. The teachers are caring and professional, although the school is very overcrowded right now. The teachers really work with you to help overcome problems. Although that could be because of the No Child Left Behind Act. I think for the $7,500 in property taxes we pay, the school just be a lot less populated.

I am a student at this school and this school isnt all that safe. The teachers are really nice and do a good job of making sure we understand everything. There is way to many kids at our school right now making it impossible for us to use our lockers because not everyone can have one. But overall this school is good to be at and theres alot of cool kids to hang out with here.

Although this school is approximately 10 miles from Shadow Creek Ranch in Pearland, Manvel Jr.High in the Alvin ISD has dedicated educators who look, listen and find unique ways to help their students learn. This school has an excellent curriculum and teaching staff and appropriately challenges students to do their best. It's quite evident at MJH's end-of-year school awards. Most of the students receive an academic excellence award or an academic achievement award. I including other parents whose children attend an Alvin ISD school from Shadow Creek Ranch am very pleased with the education they have receieved. With the tremendous growth of Shadow Creek Ranch, Alvin ISD is planning to build 2 more Junior Highs and 5 more Elementary Schools right here in Shadow Creek Ranch. I think it is well worth my $5900 a year for just school taxes alone.

Allot of fighting goes on at this school in the boys rest room. I don't think that the principal is doing much to straighten this problem out. Over all the teachers are great, but I'm not so sure about the Office.
