    As a parent I can not express how impressed I am with the organization in teaching motivating and understanding children displayed by the staff of MBJH. My son thrives there. There are issues with some children/families but with a school this size and in a community such as this there are bound to be "those kids" and "those families" who feel that the rules don't apply to them there always are those. As long as your student knows to roll with it and do what THEY need to do for themselves everything will be great & both the student and parent should have a great experience. Keep it Clean Kiddos! (and Parents!)
