John R Griffin Middle Ratings & Reviews

Mostly good but there is no communication or responsibility taken for wrong doing.

This school is awful. From the principal on down. Worst school we’ve ever been to as a military family. Stay far away if possible.

Racism and favoritism is highly prevalent at this school. They give harsher punishments to black males than others. They are petty, major in the minors and the teachers are quick to chastise instead of caring for the students. If you are not an "A" student you will be ignored. The only reasons why I didn't give this school a terrible rating is because they are organized, inform you of any announcements and changes and there are a few good teachers. Overall, I'm looking for another school for my son to attend. It's a joke here!! Please don't move in the district like I did expecting the cream of the crop. JGMS is not the school to be at.

Shame on John Griffin Middle School in Fayetteville, NC for censoring Donald Trump's inauguration and instead showing Barack Obama's and previous presidents, things that happened 8+ years ago! How is this okay? This isn't teaching children anything except that it is okay to pick and choose what parts of history to acknowledge and what they think they can ignore! These children deserve to know who their president is! Shame on you!

I love that JGMS pushes the children to be responsible for their actions and schoolwork. I admire the teacher's perseverance and tenacity in a thankless job. The only issue I have with JGMS is in developing a plan for my son who has adhd. I can only speak to my experience but I felt a big push back from the staff person responsible for making that happen. That said, they did agree to implementing classroom measures to help him such as giving extra time on tests, etc. His grades did improve through the year. However, the downside to no written plan is this year he will have a new set of teachers and because there is no written plan, it will be like starting anew. Additionally, I have read the transition from 8th grade to 9th grade will be very hard if no plan is in place. His doctor has recommended several times he needs the plan - just telling school staff that recommendation hasn't moved the process forward. This year I will go with a letter from the doctor. Additionally, my son is being tested at Haymount Institute, so there will be an official diagnosis. I do believe that when this happens JGMS will be on board. From what I hear this fight is typical across the border and not limited to JGMS. Doesn't make it right but it just is what it is.... In the past at another school, my son was bullied - it was a nightmare to get the school to acknowledge the behavior. I am concerned about the complaints on this page of sexual harassment, bullying and race issues at JGMS. I know it is hard to monitor every moment as a teacher. My son has stated there is bullying and racism at the school. I don't know how extensive it is but a little is too much. As a parent, I do feel it is my responsibility to teach my son how important it is to speak up if he sees this type of behavior happening. But at this age, it is very hard to convince a student to speak up. And it is the school's responsibility to make the atmosphere safe. Overall, I am satisfied with JGMS and their management of my child's education. I chose where I lived based on Jack Britt's reputation and am thankful JGMS was a part of the deal! I want my son to be prepared for high school and college. I would recommend JGMS to others.
