Open Quote My daughter is in this school and I can't wait for the end of the school year, so I don’t have to deal anymore with the people at the front office. Especially one of them which is rude, unprofessional and awful. Apparently she believes that military people are so broke that we don't have enough money to pay for a yearbook and she is refusing to give to me the year book I already paid for. This person had also refused to provide me an enrollment application telling me that I have to go on their website, which is a mess too, and print it out. Everything is complicates in this middle school. She told me that I had to pay 10c per each page. we had just movered to Colorado, we had no printer so I went to the store to get this lady a package of paper. However, she continues with her bad attitude against me! this school is run by rude people. All this happened before the COVI-19. After the COVI-19 it got worse. The JIHS is on the contrary a good school. they are welcoming people they do understand the military moving around. Do no Sent your kids to the JIMS. THERE ARE NOT THE ONLY COMPLAINTS I HAVE ABOUT THIS MIDDLE SCHOOL, THIS ARE JUST A FEW COMPLAINTS. 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.
