I have been very disappointed in JMS. I was accustomed to more communication between teachers and parents. You very rarely know what is going on unless you happen to hear it in the community.

Sports programs are great (Have to keep the AL tradition alive).Level of parent involvement seemed to be higher than average.Academic programs seems a little below average.
