Low performance in academics. The school is does not have a good sports department. There is not much parent involvement since it is populated with low income families who work and do not have much time to attend parent-teacher meetings.

This school is much to small for the number of students attending.

TJ has very smart, well bevahed students and very good extra-curricular activities, but us parents definitely need to be more involved.
