My son attended this school in 6th grade and it was wonderful. Academically the school pushed him to excel, he now attends a school where they don't expect much unfortunately. If we didn't live so far away he would once again attend Chief Joe, and if it wasn't 300 miles away I would gladly drive him there!
Two of my kids went to Chief Jo. It is an Ok school. There is a number of very good teachers there. Few extracurricular activities are missing compared to two other middle schools in the district. There is no math club or chess club. The school's test performance is not high, which makes me think that the principal leadership is not spectacular. The new discipline 'Make your day' program is a disaster. Kids waste at least 90 min every week of instructional time on grading their behavior in each class in front of their peers.
This school has a great staff that cares about the students and does a fantastic job of supporting the kids from all different academic areas. The students with good grades are given opportuninities to learn and grow in the classroom with enrichment activities and a variety of extra-curricular programs while the students that need extra help are supported, encouraged and provided with teacher assisted homework clubs and study skills classes that will assist them in keeping up.
