Joliff Middle School is a phenomenal school. Mr Hicks is a one of a kind Principal. He knows all his students and families. Even when we see him around town he's always asking how everyone is doing. He goes above and beyond to ensure that Joliff Middle School has the best of the best to offer it's students. The teachers and administrative staff are always pleasant and everyone at Joliff goes the extra mile. It almost seems like that's the motto at Joliff and the positive spirits are infectious. Mrs Metzger, Mrs Potter, and Ms Wood you have made such a difference in my child's life. Thank you for your dedication to your students the three of you truly are angels. Needless to say Joliff Middle School rocks!

This is great school, location and quality teaching. The teachers are very involved with ensuring the student are learning the information and retaining the information which is key to being able to apply it later in the future. The staff is excellent with the children and there are alot of great activities/clubs for the students to keep them out trouble.

This is my child's first year at Jolliff Middle School and she has had a hard time making the adjustment from elementary school to middle school. Overall, I think the teachers have tried to be helpful but at times I feel as if they are not as understanding as they should be. Overall, I think the quality of the school and its administrators are good, but I do feel that some of the teachers need a little sensitivity training when it comes to dealing children who may need more time adjusting to a new environment.

My children entered in Fall of 2006 and I have been impressed with the atmosphere, teachers, and administration and their hands on approach. I have seen Principle Fowler in action, he knows the students by name and recognizes parents which I think speaks volumes. I think they create a well rounded learning environment and welcome new students as part of the family.

Joliff Middle has a great atmosphere when entering and I always feel as if I am able to go where I want to go with the proper visitor badge. The principles are very nice and I feel my child is well protected at the school. I was a little concerned about the transition from elementary to middle and had no idea how easy it was going to be for my son. He has stayed on the honor roll the whole year and has become so resposible so quickly. Joliff middle has been great so far!
