    "I love JWJ, we drive 45 minutes to school and home just to have the wonderful experience we do at JWJ. The 6th grade teachers are truly amazing especially Mr. Ricks. I have never seen such an amazing group of teachers and leaders. The sports are amazing, my daughter is on the track team and they provide so much more then a typical sport with team building and confidence. JWJ is truly preparing the students of the future. Much better then any private school. I would highly suggest JWJ."

    "This school is THE BEST! I am a student there, and this is my first year. They say they train students in The Spirit of Excellence, and honestly, IT'S TOTALLY TRUE! I have had a few friends who were lazy at first, but with the help of teachers, they got WAY better, and ALWAYS work as hard as they can! Most of the other students are kind, and teachers try to help if they can. I love James Weldon. It may not seem organized to you, and honestly, that is true, but at the JWJ Trojans, we follow our Honor Code, and NEVER cheat. We also require for you to have a 2.0 GPA or higher to stay in this school, but that is what motivates you to WORK HARD, and ALWAYS do your best!"

    "James Weldon Johnson College Preparatory Middle School staff cares more about their standing with the history fair and district scores than they do about the students, our children. Teacher communication with parents is generally horrendous; parents are expected to micromanage our children's performance via the grade portal with full understanding of all the intricacies of each teacher's classroom. Students, especially bright boys who tend to test well but miss the boat on the Mt. Everest volume of work then fall behind in that regard are left to waller and are eventually expunged from the school's roll in order to maintain the school's academic reputation. This may be a high-scoring school but it most definitely is not a great school."

    "My son is a 6th grader at JWJ. He loves it at JWJ! The teachers care about his success. The principal truly cares about each student's success as a student and a whole person. The middle school years are hard years, but there is a lot of support at JWJ. The workload is tough, but manageable. The culture is supportive and celebratory, so even smart kids are allowed to be kids. They get the freedom to become responsible and independent while protected. Not only that, there are great sports and lots of clubs! We could not be more happy!! JWJ ROCKS!!!!!"
