My child was transferred from 5th grade at Landau in the Special Ed Program to JMS for Middle School because it was his "home" school. He has been on the same level as all the kids in his class and when got to JMS he was completely lost. The classes were so much harder and I realized something I had noticed years earlier but it was much more prominent at JMS... The Special Ed was taken up by kids that were not actually Special Ed Students they were English Second Language learnings as far as I know that is not a disability! My child is Autistic that is a disability! Within the first week at the school the person who was in charge of getting my child to lunch had lost my child! Lost!!! Then he got harassed in the bathroom. He was then transferred to a Life Skills Program by November which means the district has basically given up on educating him. Because they are too busy with English Second Language Learner.... Pathetic!! They got to keep their score up and with kids like my son there it brings it down. Maybe if they had actually tried to teach him. Also the teachers seemed to really be annoyed by my son. When you get to that point do us all a favor retire!

I am the president of asb in this school it is a nice school but it challenging to pass it has little electives but there is still after school clubs.
The school is pretty good the teachers are approachable pleasant and seem to enjoy their work and the students are nice kids. I think they need more choice of electives healthier lunch choices and to ramp up the academic curriculum. Some of those are district problems. The school seems safe and my child really likes being a student at James Workman. Please excuse my mediocre ratings for teacher principal leadership and parent involvement. I'm only slightly aquainted with my child's teachers as she is an A student and I do not know the principal or involved parents. I don't think the school has even sent out any requests for participation. We used to have our child in private school where parent and principal involvement was a big deal.
This school is alright but if your putting your son or daughter your gonna deal with alot like fights . There is a whole lot of peer presure so think about it alot.
James Workman Middle school is such a great school. It is fun and very educated all the teachers are great espeacially the 7 th grade teachers . I lovr going there and it is the number one (# 1 ) middle school in the palms spring unifide school district !!!!!!
James Workman also offers After school tutoring a lot of electives and a lot of after school Programs I give James Workman a Thumbs up!
This school is pretty nice my duaghter went here for two years and never had a problem she couldn't work out with a school couselor. The teachers could've communicated better with the parents but she did well in her classes despite the lack of. She felt is was a very safe environment.
James Workman Middle School is a great school beacause they have the best teachers and staff.And people who think JWMS is not a good school they are very wrong because I go there and I have never had a problem with this school.
Terrible school my daughter is learning things that she already learned in third grade disciplinary action is unfair and prejudiced its so bad that I am willing to pay 1200.00 a month for private school.
I have one child who attends and we have had a positive experience. Teachers and staff are very helpful and disipline is excellent. The teachers are dedicated. Parent volunteer is good at Jamesworkman.
James Workman is an outstanding school. The teachers are dedicated and the administration is approachable and receptive to parent concerns. The discipline at the school is exemplary.
This is a GREAT school!
I love James Workman i attended for the first 3 years it was open. The school's teachers are great and the staff is even better. They make u feel safe.
I have had two children attend James Workman and I think the principal and teachers are awesome. They know their subjects very well and motive their students to excel in every subject including their personal lives. The teachers really care about their students.
This scool is great! I love it! Ive been going there for about three years I wouldnt want to go to another school.
Parents who want to be involved go to the Site Council Meetings! This is the time for your input. I have a child who just left and a child starting this year. Overall I feel its the best Middle School in PSUSD. Teacher's are appreciated by parents. They work very hard. Ability to communicate get grades homework and other info from website is extremely helpful for parents and students.
This is a great school that offers student a safe and clean environment in which to learn.
Great staff that loves working with students. Lots of funding for technology.
