This schools is sorely lacking in technology lessons and the means to teach. These children will not be prepared for college. Where is the debate class/ no school plays/ no youth legislature .... this year the students themselves started a robotics club, and I am so proud of them. Neighboring Baldwin ...  Read more

Uriah is the best school in the county. Competition is not as hard and more kids are able to participate in activities.

My oldest daughter began attending JUB in the 1st grade this year. She went to K-5 at another school and I have to say, that comparing the two, I am extremeley pleased with JUB.

James, sorry you had such an unfulfilling experience. Like you, I wrangled with some of the unenlightened persons in the community.

I would like to say that I have 2 children in this school and I am very satisfied with their progress. I feel that there are alot of programs for them to get involved in.

as a recent graduate i can see that it has been a while since mr mcovney has been at JUB, the teachers are great, extra curricular activities are wonderful for a school this small and there is not a problem with racism or old world values. as recently published in the monroe journal, JUB is one of only ...  Read more

Its sad that no one has ever heard of James. I've lived in Uriah for 30 years and have worked with the school system for 25. I don't know where he's getting his info from. Just look at our SAT's, our ASHGE rate, and the latest ARMS test results. Sorry, but Blacksher leads the county. As for Excel, ...  Read more

I went to school here and though alot has changed. I still think it is a very backwards school and community. If I were a prospective parent of a student I would definately look into Excel or Monroe Academy. Extracurricular act. are lacking as are arts and music. The quality is of the programs is a nightmare. ...  Read more
