My daughter attended JAMS. 6th-8th grade (2012-2013) and we loved this school. The principal went above and beyond to help keep us informed. The teachers were always knowledgeable, helpful and empathetic. Thanks, Jerstad!
Jerstad-Agerholm is a public city middle school of over 700 students. In 2008, things did seem to slip on the administration side. This year there is a new principal who really supports the school, staff and administration and she also knows how to get things done. Much has improved this year. Parental involvement can still be a problem, but you have to look at where the student population comes from. There is a smaller, but very active PTSA at the school which enhances the experience for the students. The principal has stated she would like to be at JAMS for a while-more than the year we were getting from the previous 4 principals! Support this school and give it a chance.
Jerstad-Agerholm Middle School use to be a good school. My oldest child attended this school for three years with no problems. But now my second child has had nothing but problems at this school, I nor my child has no support from this school, they are being bullied and all the school staff states is how my child needs to be careful as to how he reacts to others. So it is okay for other students to hit and push him all because he he might of said HI to another student and staff says that he might of used a strange tone of voice. I don't believe that there are any decent schools in Racine, Wisconsin anymore. If you are considering a school in Racine, my suggestion is Walden or Private all the way.
