    Awful if you don't play football or basketball you are automatically bullied or picked on.None of my friends cared about anything my friends all year would make F's and just say they did'n't care its just school The teachers are not teaching and don't push kids to accomplish anything most dont even know how to teach one 7th grade science teacher just handed us worksheet after worksheet all i have to say is do not send your child here because it is awful

    I have been very pleased with MJHS. One child is currently in the 7th grade and one child has finished at MJHS.

    I have one child at MJHS and he loves it. We are very pleased with the teachers and adminstration. We had a choice between Moody schools and another local school system and are very please that we chose Moody.

    We love this school. The teachers are great and the principal is wonderful. There is no other place that I would ever send my children. I have only great things to say about MJHS.
