When we first moved to the area we had our doubts about the school system. But we have been pleasantly surprised. This school is in a poor community but the quality of teachers is as good here as Mountain Brook in Birmingham. The school does not have the financial support needed but they do a great job
... Read more with what they have. The key to ensuring your child gets the best education possible is to work with the school and be involved in what and how your child is learning. Help the teachers as much as you can and you'll see results. They have a lot of kids in class and it's hard for them to focus all of their attention on one child so stay behind your child and know what's going on. My complaints: The discipline is a little strict, the dress code being enforced next year is unnecessary. Read less

This school is one of few schools that offer a program that teaches children that you would consider ,slow, not attentive, acts up in class, just wont pay attention or YOU NEED TO LEARN MORE kid.

This school is terrible. The teachers don't care one little bit about these kids. They are there to babysit and get a paycheck. My child struggles with bullies and reports incidents to them and they do nothing about it. The school he came from, he was a straight A student. He does good to get a B at

One of the major problems of this school is the lack of parent involvement and concern. If more parents would get involved in their children's education, things at this school would improve dramatically.

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. The teachers give conduct marks left and right for things that have nothing to do with conduct! Silent lunch
