I was so worried about sending our youngest to this school after moving to CA from AZ. But I have to say, I'm so impressed with the teachers and academics. The teachers really get to know the students individually and care about their success. It's been a great 3 years. So glad we decided on John Muir.

This is my last year at Muir and I have loved it here! The teachers are wonderful and try their hardest to teach us. Some people say that the school is terrible because some of the kids are "bad", but I never really had that problem. I recommend to incoming 6th graders that they should choose their friends ...  Read more

Thank god that there are other public charter schools in our area. Too many rude kids come to this school just to fool around. The school always said they had good kids and not being helpful at all.

The teachers are nice, but the students sure aren't. I'm a sixth grader at this school and so far I've hated it. I get bullied and made fun of almost every day. And it's not just me, either. I see a lot of other students get teased and bullied at my school. The staff might try to deny it, but I know ...  Read more

I've been here all 3 years. I hate it. I don't know if its just me, or if the school really has degraded, but it's terrible. People are so RUDE. The teachers are not bad, but the students have no respect or remorse. I had fun in the 6th grade, but only because it was a whole new experience. The school ...  Read more
