  • JM is full of amazing students. The kids are (over all, of course there are always exceptions) amazingly polite and kind to one another and adults.
    The principal and vice principal are GREAT, and responsible for JM having the best year this year than it's had in a long time.
    The teachers are almost all very dedicated and helpful. Most of the teachers drive in from Chapel Hill or Cary/Apex to teach there just because they are so dedicated to the student body.
    The building is getting a ton of improvements this year, and is finally starting to look clean and nice.

  • Jordan Matthews is a great school. Teachers here care about your work and care about you. Usually other teachers wouldn't care about their students and don't care if they do their work or not. They just want to get paid. We have strict rules and you have to be here at school because the consequences are big. Overall, JM cares about us and don't like to see us fail.
