    I have been pleased with the communication from the school to our home. I got two call outs regarding the weather and school closing as well as it being posted on their web page. I appreciated this a great deal.

    I have to brag on the teachers and administrative staff of JCMS. I was invited to a meeting with the principal assistant principal counselor and two teachers to discuss my son's school work. They were able to give me ideas that I could use at home to help him. I was a little afraid to meet with so many people but once I got there I was made to feel right at home. They listened to me and answered all the questions I had. It was a good meeting and I left feeling very satisfied. I was glad that they took the time to meet with me.

    I am extremely satisfied with Jasper County middle school. I have a daughter starting the 8th grade and a daughter starting 6th grade this year. We all love the school system and my 8th grader has expressed several times this summer that she misses school and homework!! (REALLY!!) I love the staff and principal (Mrs. Blizzard). Mrs. Blizzard is very kind and knowledgeable. I love this school system and I look forward to an amazing school year!!!

    JCMS makes us proud to be in public school in Jasper County! Just saw the test scores and am very pleased with what I saw. I think this Board and the new make up of administrators and teachers is really paying off. Thumbs up Hurricanes!

    My family and I have been very pleased with the improvements we've experienced at JCMS of late! The teachers and administrators have worked very hard to push forward with technology. I was thrilled that my daughter was able to be a part of an accelerated program that is setting the stage for her to enter college during her junior year of high school. Kudos to JCMS!! We're looking forward to another great year.

    I have been so impressed with JCMS the past two years! The school is truly redefining itself. The staff is focused on providing innovative learning opportunities for the kids and has embraced the use of technology in the classrooms. They've added a class at the end of the day which the students can select from a long list of creative things to do. My child learned math while learning to knit the first nine weeks and science skills digging for artifacts in an archeology class the next. For a school struggling financially I give the teachers and principal credit for doing more than most with less resources. I'm pleased too with how much nicer it looks inside and out. The system has obviously poured some money into lately and the staff must be thrilled. Not only did the school get an award this year for being a high performing school the sports teams have rocked! I applaud their efforts and will miss them next year when my child moves into high school. They do an awesome job!

    I see where several parents are complaining about the conditions at the school so what are they doing to make conditions better beside complaining. Do your civic duties and get involved in the day to day operations of the school. I guarantee you that the board and school need your help and not your complaints.

    This school is in deploriable conditions!!! the teachers are clueless. This is not a title 1 school. The maintenance has issues. The air conditioning doesn't work in most of the buildings. The windows have been busted out for years in the gym. This school is very old and shows all signs of extreme wear! the surveillence system is a joke! and this school has a huge problem with bullying!! the administration is this school is more worried about eating lunch than taking care of issues that should require immediately attention involving students and safety. I sat at this school for 8 hours waiting on administration to help me with a case of bullying against my child!!! no one was in a hurry to resolve the issue! rude rude rude!!

    I am a teacher a JCMS and am thrilled with the new school this year. This is the first time for the middle school to have its own campus and identity. The students have risen to the occasion and are making it their school with a seperate identity from the former high school middle school combination. This school has teachers that care and an excellent administration. I am expecting great things from this school. It is a great place to work and the kids are great also.

    I am not pleased with this school at all. The children can not bring certain books home to study because there are not enough. I have written letters and got no response. The high school is connected and there are many fights. I have never been asked to help at the school and it is obvious they need it. If i had the money i would send her to another school some where else this one needs a lot of help. Supposedly they are building a new building we will see

    I have been quite pleased with the education my daughter has received at JCMS. She has kept good grades and been very happy and content. There is plenty clubs and sports for the kids to be involved in and plenty of teacher support if students need extra help. Overall I have been very satisfied!
