Horrible i would not send another child to that school, they do not care about the young adults, they don't work with the kids. I would rate this school at 2.

Assistant Principal (Joe Habert) resourceful, professional, respectful, congenial; school has multi-leveled mental health services responding to emotional needs of students regardless of whether these emotional needs impact their academics

Joppatowne high is a great school but needs more structure. I am a senior now and moved to pikesville high and I look back at joppatowne high and see that it was a respectable school but needs more structure. I loved the childcare program it was so fun
