This small school cares about the students and it is a great place for children to learn.

Awful teachers, low test scores, dirty building. Should shut down immediately. I see teachers smoking outside and screaming at kids all the time.

I love this school. My daughter is not deaf or hard of hearing and she loves coming home and showing me new sign languages she has learned from her teacher. She was shy and now I can not get her to stop talking. She loves this school and her Pre-K teacher.

JMA was originally chartered to serve deaf and hard of hearing students, their hearing siblings, and was also open to all other students under the open enrollment charter school policy. Today, JMA teaches a diverse population consisting of approximately 10% deaf students, a wide ethnic population, and encompasses PreK through Grade 12. Deaf students are served by hearing teachers, many of whom are proficient in American Sign Language. The deaf students are also served by a certified interpreter. On campus, there are 14 teachers, one of whom is deaf and teaches American Sign Language to Middle School and High School students. Small class sizes and caring teachers make JMA an ideal setting for Middle School and High School students who would benefit from violence free and drug free atmosphere. Great school. Wonderful accepting teachers.

I'm trying to enroll, but I see comments that say the many teachers are deaf. And I also see that the students operate with sign language, so do I need to learn sign language? Is this school only for the deaf/hard-of-hearing?


no rating

JMA is an excellent school. The 'can do' attitude which is apparent and expected of all students is what makes this school exceptional. The teachers and administration really care about the students and have gone above and beyond their 'duties' as educators to become mentors, advocates and friends of each student. No children are left behind in academics or in communication. Everyone is encouraged to sign. I have seen students that have come in with very little comprehension and ablity flourish and become fluent in a few months. I highly recommend this school to deaf or hard of hearing students in the area and their family members that find it necessary to communicate and interact with the deaf community. Ms. Jackson is doing a fantastic job as administrator.
