All the new electives are really cool. The Robotics, Drones and Lego classes give students a lot of great choices. Mr. Carey and Mr. Schammann do a great job of making JMS fun.

I absolutely DESPISE it! The bullying, unclean campus, lenient staff, rude office people, what more an you ask for in a school? Most the teachers are really nice, as is the librarian. But the bullying! The cursing, stealing, ect.! There are kids there who make out and steal stuff and curse! The cursing is unbearable. And do the teachers say anything? Nope! -10 out of 100.

I've been going to this school for two years. The standards for each class is great, we learn alot in one year. Majority of teachers are fun, and the classrooms are kept tidy. Music program has been great here for a long time, though I think the new Music Appreciation classes should be removed because we only have 5 music groups(mostly Strings, Beginning Band), and the instrumental enrollment is low again. But overall great.
