Joan Macqueen Middle School Reviews
Excellent school! My child uses technology daily in the classroom as well as at home with his homework. They have very hard working teachers with great home/school connections. My child happens to be in the ANZA program Alpine Natural Science Academy. This program is fabulous as is the as the teacher that facilitates this classroom. He is one of many teachers that may be laid off because of the state budget cuts. I ask you to get involved and write your state representatives.
i am a proud alpine parent, but am very disapointed that JMMS uses so little technology, which we have available, to give our students the skills and expertise that is going to help them in the coming century. I have a GATE student who has not done one single High Tech or High Reasoning project this year, and it is already January!!!!
