Go to Virginia Dept. of Education website and look at the Report Cards for schools. Read the Powell Valley News Announcement for VIP schools this week. Middle School Students are the same no matter at this age.

My niece and nephew go there and are always talking about fights in gym class and other kids recording them with cell phones,
but kids exaggerate at that age too. I myself went to jms several years ago.

Well...sorry...but EVERy school will have kids that "sneak" cell phones in their school..haha

And...PMS is a GOOD school...NO school is PERFECT..you are going to have fights and kids getting into trouble and students and parents that don't like certain teachers....which is normal....I don't know of ONE school that doesn't have all of these things going on...BOTH of my kids have went/going there!! And, I was very pleased with the school ...

I will tell you this I am unhappy with this school as are several parents. All they do is fight, cuss, just cell phones, and some do drugs at school. This is at all schools? I hope not but it is at PMS. I had a good kid but now that he is at this school I would say he is anything but good! I am not sure about the teachers or MRS.Warner. What times I have delt with them they seem to be doing what they can. The problem is certain kids that parents don't care what they do and other kids follow the leader. I think the school needs to send the ones that are always into trouble home for more than a day or two. Maybe then when the parents have to deal with them at home they might start to care what they do at school.
wow

If your child is following maybe you should home school or move him. The main thing is get control and its not to late yet.

First of all, ALL schools have their issues. And yes, I have had students tell me that they have done drugs while at school...and they do NOT attend PMS. The fact is...that you can not blame anyone else for your child doing/experimenting with drugs or anything else....that is rediculous. If you have taught your child right from wrong...and NOT to be a follower....and follow up with consequences...then you shouldn't have to worry. But , you can NOT blame the school...for your child doing something wrong. As far as sending them home, I do not think that is the solution but schools can only do so much. Some kids actually want to be sent home, they think it is "cool". Both of my kids have attended PMS...and I was pleased with the school...and how The principal does her job. No school is perfect nor will any ever be. All you can do as a parent, is teach your child morals, values, and manners.....and respect. It all starts at HOME, and can not put blame on the school.

There of been times when I've been really scared at school. It sucks to be basicly trapped in a place where you don't feel safe. Even if u try to just keep to urself u can still be hurt. Yeh, names hurt and so does being shoved and hit. Why don't tjhe teachers care? I guess there scared to do anything.

Staff and students change year to year. I can say that it wasn't High School but Middle School when I rebelled against my parents and was unruley. I wouldn't say the school affects the attitude or molding of your child but the friends and their age above all. As for the school, some teachers care, teach, and understand how to make you understand the material. Then, some give you busy work and when its SOL time they teach whats on the test for about a mnth.
Find out who will be teaching your child and speak to them about innovations.
Find out who will be over the facilty and students.
Find out who will be with them regulary in halls and the cafeteria.
Find out MOST of all what the syllabus is for P.E. and how well they are monitored...thats where the bad stuff happens!
Answer these questions in the year that your child goes and not before hand as staff and students change.

this is right on warning! The place is a circus gone bad and those teachers really need to watch the kids at all times. And I mean watch! The bullying needs to be stopped! Why don't they care? The principal can't do it alone! These students need constant supervision! The violence is unbelievable!
