  • I feel like the students in the fifth grade are overloaded with homework.I feel it is very lengthy,and unreasinable for them to have such long assigments.I am speaking as a grandparent whho helps their grandchild each night work none stop for several hours without goofing off and still can not get done with it alland be in bed at a decent hour.

  • Jemison Middle School may have a lot of drama but it is a very good school. All the teachers are nice, well most of them, and everybody knows pretty much everybody! I love the way the most of the teachers teach and make sure everybody understands before moving on. After this year I will only have 1 more year left at Jemison Middle School. And during my last year of middle school I will be playing volleyball.
    Well, I hope you read my review!
