I can’t say the school was bad but the communication from the school is horrible. Most of the time, I had no idea what was going on and when. Albeit, this year had the COVID-19 pandemic so the school had to scramble with e-learning but it was a joke. First, my child had a good 3 hours of work a day but apparently other parents complained that it was too much for their kids so it was changed to less work. My child had 30 minutes of work a day, tops! I do feel for the other parents and kids that struggle, but MY children are my concern and they should not be given less because of other kids. That is not fair to my kids. Thankfully, my child is ahead of the game so I am confident he will not fall behind and that is a good problem to have. We did not have any other issues. Overall, not the greatest school but definitely a good school.
my school is amazing! I am so excited to go back to school I the fall. The teachers on 6 gold were amazing. they have gotten back most of the specials to, gym, study hall, music, art and health. I love cjh, it is amazing! I don't see why there r so many bad reviews about it. I love it way more than three oaks or briargate. go dragons!
Cary Junior High has been wonderful! This is a community oriented school with tons of parent involvement. The teaching staff is top notch and always available for questions. The reputation of Cary Junior High is one of the reasons we chose our neighborhood and we are not disappointed!
This school used to be a great school, but the school district has now gotten rid of all specials - no art, music, pe, foreign language, facs, or industrial tech. The elementary teachers are to teach art, music and pe. These teachers are overworked and have no knowledge of those areas so basically the fundaments are not being taught. The junior high has pe but is planning on having only 2 teachers next year and 50 kids in a class so again the curriculum is compromised and the students are basically being supervised and not being taught. It is a shame what has happened to this once great district.
