School Reviews

  • Recommended September 08, 2012 - This program is like no other. Students and faculty become a family through the warmth and love that is shown through its "Community of Kindness" program. Academics are stellar - students are learning 21st Century Skills (blogs, digital media, global literacy, etc.) that are only touched upon in the high school level and only in those magnet high schools or academies that specialize in Technology and Media Literacy. Students leave MJGDS prepared for high school, and even more importantly, are guided during the Middle School years to prepare for the high school of their choice. 100% of students who qualify are accepted in AICE or IB programs that they apply to. - Posted by Parent
