5 years ago my son had Mrs.Lorifing for his kindergarten teacher. She was amazing!! She taught him to read within the first two weeks of school. She was super organized and had a lot of parent help. Great school.

I have had a child in this school for 4 years and have seen it go DOWN hill in the past year. Bullying is a bug problem and it seems to go by the wayside. I am seeking a better school for my son. He no longer looks forward to going to school here and his grades have dropped drastically.

When I went there in first grade, the teachers didn't care about me. When I fell one time and scraped up my whole face, the teacher said nothing and was careless. The next day I went in the class with bandages all over my face THEN the teachers said, "what happened". When I had a small fever they wouldn't ...  Read more

This school has been a wonderful place for my child to learn. I love the staff and teachers. Unfortunately, the new principal is very stand-offish and doesn't involve himself with the children.

All three of my children have gone to school here. One is in high school and two are still attending MJ. This school has always been great.

The teachers are dedicated and work very hard! They strive to meet the needs of the children in their care. Too bad the administrators have become too consumed with data and paper work to stay connected to the students, unless a discipline problem arises.

My little sister goes here for her year as a fifth grader. She really enjoy's the activities, and the academics are nowhere compared to what I have even learned when I was in 7th grade. She also loves art classes activities that allow her imagination run wild! Overall she couldn't be happier
