Most of the teachers are terrible but there are a few good ones. The classes are way to big and the kids don't stay occupied. They are bad cause the teachers let them be. There are a few good teachers-holty, mangurm, but that is about it. The new principal and vice principal are terrible1
I'm in high school now and I took jr high for granted. Yes MPJ does have some pretty crappy teachers but it also has a few extraordinary ones. Some parents forget that sometimes students don't learn because they aren't putting forth the effort then they blame the teachers. Trust me parents, I'm a teenager I know how the system works. Not all of your kids are the smart little angels they pretend to be. Again, mpj does have some pretty awful teachers but learning is a two sided deal.
This is my third year at MPJH, and it is the worst and hardest year of my life. A few teachers are exceptable, but most don't care about the students. They don't explain anything clearly. There are too many kids per class that the teachers don't have time to help each student with what they need. There are so many kids in the school that you have to worm your way through the halls and inbetween desks, and share classrooms with the other teachers and students. I do recomend a few teachers, Math- Mr. Short or Mr. Nelson Science- Mr. Durham English- Mrs. Wilson History- Ms. Fillion Any music teacher is a very good choice. Over all, Brother Midel is the best and most rememberal teacher you will ever meet. -seminary teacher.
The teachers are terrible and don't care about anyone's grades. They are not willing to help out and I am pulling my kids out of the school next year. It's that bad! There are also very few classes to choose from and the administration is bad thank goodness for the new principal next year, hopefully she will be better!
This school is okay, but the administration is poor. The teachers are not very good at disciplining the students at all. As for classes, there are very few options compared to other schools. We barely got Chinese this year for foreign language
The class sizes are much too large, but there are very few students, so drug problems are nonexistent. The teachers know what they are teaching, and are positive roll models.
I have had two students attend MPJH. It is a fine education. The band program is exceptional. We have had a couple of teachers that are not ideal, but on the whole, it is a good school. Mr. Short is an incredible math teacher. Basketball is a very competitive sport to get into, so that's too bad, but wrestling promotes such a wonderful camaraderie between the grade levels! It's alot of fun.
