Community ratings & reviews

  • (5 years ago)

    Although the administration and faculty do the best they can the culture at the school is decidedly not diverse. Students are primarily conservative and do not tolerate other groups.

    I am a proud teacher at JMHS. We have a wonderful administration and faculty that put the students first. Students have a wide variety of courses to chose from and have the option to earn college credits before they graduate. Our campus is top-notch. We take great pride in being one of the finest schools in the state.
