  • the school is okay except for the ongoing bomb threats nothings ever happened but it has become almost daily we had three one was the day after another we get a lot of of homework at least a page or two from one teacher every day principals are okay but one of are principals always carries zip ties so that if he sees a likely culprit its go to the office after i zip tie u a belt the school sports are okay just not much to choose from the girls have volleyball softball track and cheerleading the boys have track and football u could include band but the bands nothing special i mean if u are looking for a good music school it's not here the buildings are a couple years old except for the two story up by the front office thats brand new were currently on controlled movements we cant talk at lunch in class or between classes we cant even go to the bathrooms it will be like this for the rest of the08-09 school year if your children are anti social and hate everything i would recommend them this school.its because of the bomb threats they're punishing everyone it is "innocent until proven guilty" which i doubt they're ever going to find out who did

  • We are transplants into this city and J23 has been a welcoming environment for our family. The education, dicipline, extra-curriculars, and facility are all top-notch. The faith-based curriculum is open to people of all faiths.
