Open Quote The worst public High School in Montgomery. I hate this school so much, that I'm moving out of Montgomery just to get my son out of this school. The stupid zoning system says my son is zoned to JD. So, unless I move, he has no choice but to attend this awful school. The teachers, principal, staff are all rude and unprofessional. Pretty much all of Montgomery public non magnet schools are terrible, but JD is truly terrible. Too many students and too many of the facility simply do not care about the students or giving them a good education. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
