    "This school my have good test scores but are these kids being taught to the test or learning. Well, I can attest to the fact that they are being taught to the test is this how we want are children to learn. In New York parents are protesting this type of learning and demanding better for their children and why should we except less here in NC. Not every child can be scored by standardized testing (children are not standardized)! Teachers as far as I can remember are suppose to be a person children feel comfortable confiding in not at JGMS. The Assistant Principal is far from friendly, kind,or caring all things that that should be required in any Principal. Along with test scores, there is the issue of harsh punishment, yet this does not apply to all. The bullying situation is pushed under the rug, the administration there I believe has no clue what to do in regards to the bullying. The upper administration of this school act as if they can do what ever they want and answer to no one, that is very scary."

    "AMAZING school with AMAZING teachers!! I have been nothing but impressed with this school and the support of the teachers. Yes we have had some teachers that I have had to talk with about some issues, but these were resolved without having to go any further. Any issues or concerns have always been dealt with right away with great support."

    "This school is not all that it's cracked up to be. Is someone paying somebody else to get great reviews & test scores 'cause we surely didn't see that at JGMS?! A lot of other parents I talked to at JGMS also agreed. Granted it does have its fair share of good teachers, but it also has its share of not so good ones that you have to wonder why they're even teaching ($)--at our children's expense. I couldn't agree more with the post on 11/17/13 & 6/3/13 as my child has experienced a totally different atmosphere at PFMS after leaving JGMS. I do have to say that JGMS will be getting one of the best science teachers around next year in Ms. Bragg since she is leaving PFMS due to proximity to home. Those that get her will have one of the best! Besides, Jack Britt/ JGMS are at least 30-40mins from Ft. Bragg area, if you work there. You should really check out the Pine Forest area if working at Bragg. Greatly surprised and pleased there. JGMS did have dances for the kids, which was nice. No PTA/O and strict (sometimes to extreme). Should have gone by our gut feeling when we first visited as one of the asst. principal's was yelling loudly at a child & didn't even close door."

    "We recently moved to the area after hearing how wonderful the schools are and how they are the best in the county. If you are looking at test scores, yes they are higher than some other schools, but that comes with a price. This school runs an extremely tight ship and literally spent about the first week of school going over all the rules/ punishments. My kids were scared to death, to the point where they were afraid to turn in club applications or AG testing papers in the morning because they may get in trouble for not going straight to their class. It has been very difficult for them to make friends due to all the rules and lack of any type of social time. They even spend lunch at assigned seating with teachers. There is no PTA or PTSA at this school which is a red flag. I don't feel they are very open to parent involvement and honestly don't care about the emotional well being of the kids, only the test scores. I'm not impressed by the administration and feel that only a handful of teachers are actually teaching the children. NC by far doesn't have the best education system. I wish we had looked elsewhere and will be pulling our kids out. Way too overcrowded!"

    "Great academics....but some of the teachers disregard anything a student may say (even the good students), some teachers forget to collect/grade/record work assignments and are very quick to give a "zero grades" on progress reports. Some teachers even act worse than the student for example..getting and putting hands in students faces. I regards to the 8th grade class this school only validates the student that earned straight "A' ALL year...so if you earned a B at any point you do NOT receive an End-of-the-Year Award Ceremony. As a parent that is very disappointing that this school only values the academic aspect of a student and not the student moral. Glad she is of to HS."
