    "John Muir high school is a good school, but needs improvement. From a students perspective I can tell parents what really goes on in the school. First main problem is not only affecting Muir, but other schools in the nation, and that is the budget. The schools low budget limits the amount of student activities, but more importantly affects classes and educational programs that helps students. The last problem are the students enrolled in the school. Muir has a great team of staff and teachers willing to help students learn , however students disrespet teachers and students often pay for this. Muir might become a good school in the future but as of right now it needs a lot of improvement. Also some of the students pier pressure their fellow classmates into doing drugs, which leads to someone going to the hospital(it's happens 3 times so far! )"

    "John Muir Highschool is the absolute best school for my 15 year old son. He was diagnosed with Autism at age two and has developed into high functioning Asbergers. The staff at Muir is excellent in engaging him, teaching him and advising him. He has superb grades, picked up playing the saxophone, got into marching band and is also a part of the ROTC. I am amazed at the young gentleman he is becoming. He is on track to fulfill his dream of becoming an engineer. The Principal is always available to talk to. We bought a home a few blocks away from PHS but told the district we wanted to keep him at Muir. This school is turning around, changing and it's thrilling to be a part of making it happen."

    "JMHS is a great school! The faculty, staff and administration are all very supportive. They've been working hard to improve the overall quality of the school, and there has been tremendous improvement since Principal Sipple has arrived. The kids are fantastic and are really fun to work with. JMHS is working diligently to ensure the kids are getting a world-class education. Don't believe me? Just ask for a tour of the school and see for yourself!"

    "As a graduate, don't send your kids here. We didn't learn anything in half of my classes and half of the teachers didn't teach. The excuse of demographics doesn't even apply since PHS and Marshall pull from essentially the same pool, albeit no PUSD school compares to its neighbors. It wasn't until I went to college, with friends from every other high school around Pasadena, that I realized how cheated my friends and I were out of an education. Different standards expectations and performance compared to us who nearly all of us either failed a class or dropped out. If you care about your children's future, don't send them here."
