My daughter is entering 8th grade at CJH. She's had all positive experiences, despite being a minority (caucasian) at the school. We've had only two complaints. First, they don't issue books - she's become quite familiar with YouTube instructional videos to supplement in-class learning. And second, the racial divide at the school is extreme. Frequently she's dealing with taunts of "hey, white girl" in the hall. If nothing else, it's preparing her for real-life in a way she wouldn't normally see. I guess that has to happen when you're surrounded by people accustomed to solving problems with fists instead of words. Her conflict management skills are off the charts now and she's more determined than ever to do well in school and get as far away from small-minded individuals who see only skin color and not substance.

It is amazing how some of the staff at this school are so rude especially the nurse. Hope your child never has to go see her!! She seems like she hates her job so much!! Not only that my son has very bad asthma and misses quite a bit of school from it. I call and report his absent and send a dr note to cover this and I have been reported over and over again to Katy ISD Police Department. The top people at this school only care about the money they can get from kids coming to school. they dont care the reason a child maybe out sick. I have had nothing but issues at this school and can't wait till my son is done going here!!!

My son and I love this school. We are new to the area and my son was wary of changing schools. But, he has made great friends. They are good kids. His grades have been good and he has learned more than at his previous schools. He has even improved on his trumpet. (At his previous school the band teachers catered to the students who got private lessons.) His teachers communicate often with the parents via e-mail updates. And, his grades are regularly updated on the on-line parent access site. Staying in this district will mean an hour drive to and from work everyday. But, I really believe it is worth it.

The school is racially divided for the most part. Hispanics are the main ethnic group and sadly, most are not good students. The teachers for the most part, however, are great and really do try to help us, but there's very few people who actually care. The cliques are very defined. There have been big problems in the past with several things. If you are with the right people and avoid the trouble, though, school is pretty much okay. I do like the school.
