Wow. Where do I begin? This school is a hot mess. I reluctantly put my child in school here because we are assigned to it. I regret that decision. Grade inflation is off the charts. My child was bringing home A's and B's even though it was not deserved. The TCAP scores told the truth and showed a huge
... Read more discrepancy. The only bright light is a totally new facility that is being built and a new principal, Dr. Moody. They still have a long way to good and I'm not subjecting my child to any more of the transition stage hoping that it will get better. Time is ticking and critical learning skills are not being taught. Read less

Joelton Middle School is the worst school in which I have ever taught. The teachers are overwhelmed and absolutely not supported by the administration or the district. Like most schools, Joelton is understaffed. The students have been dumped there by parents who are rarely involved and too many are
... Read more disrespectful and woefully lagging behind developmentally and educationally and really don't care. The teachers should be applauded for trying to make a difference. Don't expect things to get better at this school or many others as long as parents aren't held accountable and administrators are only out to protect their own jobs with the district. If you have an alternative to Joelton Middle School, use it. Read less

Iagree. My son was a honor student and loved learning. Now that he has been to Joelton, he never has homework, his grades has gone down, and he was also suspended twice. Joelton has had a problem for years. I dreaded my son attending and he will not be returning next year. I feel that the teachers

This school is awful. My son went from an A, B student to a mostly all F's. My child had never been suspended in all his school year, he was suspended twice thisyear. Also he was put in ISS, I dont knohow many times. I was a parent that wanted to work with the teachers as much as I possibly could. They

The Teachers are there for a pay check. They want all the students to be on some type of medicine so they can sit there and do thier homework instead of teaching the kids. Read less

I attended Joelton Middle School all four of my middle school years. And never once did I encounter any problems at all. The teachers are wonderful and use creative teaching methods.

Joelton Middle has been a great asset to my son. He transferred from Rose Park which was an awful experience. His grades have improved from all F's at Rose Park to A's & 1 D. He is a much happier child, not coming home overwhelmed with homework and incomplete classwork. Joelton teachers give him his

He still has homework but not so much that he has to stay up until 10p.m. He was in tutoring every evening when he attended Rose Park but now he doesn't need tutoring the teachers do enough tutoring in class for him, which I think is great. Education is very important for every child and family time is also important. If you are considering a good school this is definitely the one. I am so proud of my son. Read less

I find Joelton Middle School to be one of the top schools in Davidson County. The teachers there are concerned and want students to learn. The administration and faculty are trying very hard to get us parents involved in our child's education, by having monthly parent meetings.
