    "This school is awful, If you have an IEp they dont care they`ll still move on, in math- 3.2 is due monday and 3.1 was due friday and 3.3 is due wednesday I would not send anybody at this school Greencastle is way better, JB could improve by slowing things down and consider some people need help and that were all gonna fail if they keep this up"

    "I am the same parent that submitted the May 2010 reveiw, and I have to admit that my opinion has taken a 180 degree turn. Mr. Benedick, Mr. Burkett and fix JB have worked very hard to make a school that the students, along with their parents, can be proud of. It has become a great learning environment. The building has had a makeover, The cafeteria menu has a selection of good food, the learning is being taken into the 21st century with some students being assigned laptops and ipads available to use. There is also a wide variety of extra activities for students."

    "Having watched the school for years from other schools in the district and now assigned there, I find my opinion changed greatly. The principal/assistant principl team of Mr. Benedick & Mr. Burkett have greatly changed the atmosphere to the positive. While it will never be like Mr. Rahauser's "JB Proud" Middle School, some of those worthy elements and past training are now becoming obvious in the school. I enjoy working there now whereas before I walked into the building with a certain dread. The music department is especially strong and vibrant."

    "The school building is undergoing a complete renovation and the Athletic Boosters are raising funds to repair the athletic venues. Very positive things are happening in the district."

    "This school is just semi-good. Very old school with horrible damage. No heat or air conditioning, leaky roof..just a mess. The teachers are fair. You have some that are just amazing people and some that are the complete oposite. Food stinks. Academics are o.k. Don't offer many extra classes, really just the basics. Over all just an o.k. school, nothing more. Sinks don't work in the bathrooms...it really is dreadful."
