I have been very please with JCT. We came right after the school year started this year.. I am a teacher in another district, and wanted my children to attend NWISD because of all that I had heard and researched about the district. From the very beginning, I was impressed with how the classrooms are run. They include writing in every subject area, and encourage the children to do things such as power point presentations as they research various topics that interest them. My son is a talker and loves to be constantly moving, but hated writing. His teacher last year couldn't get him to write for anything. His teacher at JCT has been able to get him to not only write, but I have caught him doing research on my ipad several times this year just because he "was curious". Any time I have a concern, the staff addresses them as soon as I express them. The office staff is very kind and seems to know every child. The students' safety is a top priority at JCT. We are truly happy with this school and I encourage anyone who has had problems to go and discuss them with the principal. She seems to truly care about the students and families at her school!

I am very disappointed with JCT. We have been there since they opened and feel that teachers play favorites. That might be great if you are a favorite student, mine however were not & not only do they get overlooked when they are making effort & trying hard, they are not given the attention they needed when there was areas they needed to improve upon. There is also a great deal of bullying that staff turns a blind eye to. Students who are displaying behavior problems are catered to instead of being disciplined for exposing other children to various words, phrases & actions. We have tried to give it time but have ultimately decided to take them out of JCT.

We are not impressed with JCT. We think the expectations are way too harsh for such small children. They have the same expectations (a full page, small font by the way) for K-5 which is unrealistic. They also seem to favor the children who are 'normal', and those who need a little special attention seem to fall through the cracks. We will be exiting JCT after the fall semester and never coming back.

This school has been open 2 years. The processes are the same as the rest of the North West ISD schools, but the knowledge of how to propperly use the processes are flawed. My son as well as many other students I've heard of have fallen through the cracks at this school. He attended Sendera Ranch the first two years it was open and we were very impressed. Sendera Ranch was amazing. JC Thompson, not so much...The counselor is not very helpful. The turn over is high as well.
