Okay I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I am a student at CJH and I love it here! Yes things are hard but that's because the teachers push you to your limit because they know you can do it! The teachers are constantly encouraging students and offer help at all times if we don't understand something. CJH is the best school there is, honestly we very rarely have bullying problems or fights or anything of that sort. We all support and care for each other. Don't be saying things if you haven't had too much experience at CJH. Go to schools somewhere else I mean even some christian schools are not as good as CJH (no offence). If you have anything negative to say then maybe you should experience going yo Columbia for two whole years then you can state your opinions. Other than that I have nothing to say except that CJH is a wonderful place and I wouldn't choose any other school over it.

I am strongly dissapointed in this school. Coming from another school in Seattle, the "Cougar Kickoff" initiation day showed me a lot of polish and promise. 3 months into school its more than clear that they were just putting on a show.

What a fantastic school! Teachers are dedicated, caring, and truly understand the true art of teaching. The administration has done a wonderful job setting up policies, discipline stuctures and student interventions sytems that encompass the many needs of junior highers. Our closets are full of CJH gear. CJH is Super Duper!

Needs to expand science wing. Needs bigger lockers. Otherwise, better than CA schools.

I strongly disagree with the bully comment above. This school as others in the district has some of the best teachers. The academic programs are preparing our children for future success and well administered. The sports programs are excellent. The school is centered in an area that is community driven and there is active parent involvement. This school as well as the others in the Fife School District have standards that surpass many of the area's around it.

This school lacks the needed leadership to address the prevelant bully problem. Teachers in their ignorance actually add to this problem. Students do not feel safe, which interferes with their ability to learn.
