I am new to the school. One of the first things I do is find out what the community thinks about a school. It seems that this school, as many schools, has had its challenges in the past. It seems that many people can complain but simply don't offer any help or do anything to make it better. I've decided to get involved to make it better. I've asked parents to submit their comments so that those who read it and want to know more about the JH can get an well rounded assessment. I can tell you that the JH really has changed for the better. They have new staff and a renewed commitment to making this school excellent. We understand that it will take time but we also understand that progress must be made daily. This is a great time to send your child here. It is a great time to get involved. We offer smaller classroom size, state of the art teaching materials for each classroom (computer tablets for each student to use), smart boards, new athletic basketball teams, and much more. It is great to work with student who need help and it is great to work with students who want help. I can think of no better time to have your child at this school as we have changed the focus and future.

The School is improving. The students are excited. They have an exciting new basketball program. Their new found Athletics will boost the quality of the school and they have developed a comprehensive program for overall School improvement, Student improvement and Teacher/Classroom improvement. Glad to see the changing for the better. Forward!

My son transfered in from a large public school. I heard about JH Charter from a friend. I was told about the past and then told about the present and the future. JH no longer is a group school. They are now a regular school. So the student population has changed. My son has benefitted from the smaller classroom sizes and the chance to get more attention. He was also able to play for the basketball team now, something he was not able to do at his last school. He needed some positive extra activity and this is working out for us.

Hello. I was present when this school was first built many years ago. You have to understand that many of these kids are from the group home called 'Jamie's House'. This group home is the 'last stop' for kids that are ward of state. The state gives kids numbers from 1 to 5 depending on their behavior and other factors, with 1 being a 'perfect angel' and a 5 being 'uncooperative, manipulative, destructive, dangerous, etc'. Think of the worst kid ever and multiply that by 10. Most of the kids at Jamie's house are from 4 to 5. Children level 3 and above are usually placed in a foster home. Please, I beg you, think twice before you place your children at this school because you would be doing them no favors.

If you want your kid beaten here, then feel free to send them to this school. This place sickens me to no end.

This is a horrible school. A 13 year old was abused by a teacher yet, she was not charged. What? Then, you have fights occurring everyday with absolutely no control over anything.

This school needs to be shut down asap. Everyday you have kids fighting, walking away from it, and students and teachers using curse words all day long. Students cant learn with teachers and students fighting allday. You have teachers pounching and chocking the students. The teachers let the kids fight allday and just sit there and watch. parents please read reviews before sending your kids to any school.

I don't see how this school is even up an running. The school is nothing but a dump. There is always kids walking up and down the middle of the road during the day. This school needs to be shut down. It's a complete eyesore.

I disagree. This school has been very helpful in my child's education. He was somewhat of a slow learner at other public schools, but has excelled in his foreign language and mathmatics since attending this school.

I concur with the other 'parent review'.This school Has low educational standards ,has failed to pass yearly state requirement ,has low Taks scores 2008-only 40% passed 10th g.Math 50% pass on English and science.Appears to be fights non stop by kids.and language abuse is aparently tolerated by students AND staff.I would not recommend your child attend this school and advice you look for one that will educate and benifet your child!

Jamie's House Charter School is a school where your child will be left behind with his or her education.This school has been a big disappointment. It is probably fine for kids who just want to say they are enrolled in school. There's no learning taking place at this school. I will not recommend you to send your child if you care about his or her education.
