My daughter attended JJMS several years ago and my son attends now. It is a large, very diverse school so there are many academic and social opportunities. Ms. Baylor, the principal, runs the school like a watch and recruits the best teachers for the school. For the most part teachers are excellent. As with any school there are a few who aren't as strong, but so far we have been happy. The core subjects are differentiated and there is an accelerated math track enabling students strong in the subject to complete both algebra and geometry prior to entering high school. There are some bullying issues, but the administration does its best to prevent it and responds quickly and appropriately when they are made aware of any issues.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
They have great programs in place to support all students.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree

Ms. Baylor is an excellent and effective principal. She recruits great assistant principals, though they tend to be promoted to principal positions after a few years. The guidance department is also very good.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Ms. Baylor recruits and retains the best teachers. They communicate well with students and parents and they seem to truly care.

Amount of homework: Agree

Homework is primarily used to reinforce learning in school. There is not an excessive amount.

My daughter attended Jouett for 6th grade and had a wonderful experience. The school is in an excellent location, surrounded by woods and fields. The school bus system was top-notch. The curriculum was excellent; she was able to take a compacted math class that was covered 6-8th grade math in one year, putting her far ahead of her peers at other schools. The school has a wonderful diverse group of children, from many university and local families. I was always so impressed with the involvement of the parents in the school and the PTO. The school is safe, and I never once heard about any problems with fights or bullying. The principal seemed to know all the kids by name. The only complaint I have is that the school closed for too many snow days.
