Program in this school is on the right track. In a short span, they are able to uplift the performance in all areas.

Over all terrible Admin not knowledgable. Downgraded from before.

While waiting in the car pool line to be picked up after school, my son witnessed his friend being provoked without cause by another kid. A crowd of kids encouraged a fight and the provoker proceeded to punch my son's friend in the eye and neck while he tried to protect his head. The assistant principal arrived too late to do anything about the beating since the carpool line is so chaotic and mismanaged. If this happens under the "watchful eyes" of teachers, then there is no way I would let my son ride the bus. This is not the first instance of physical violence at H. J. MacDonald that my son has told me about. It seems to happen one to two times a month and is directed at white students. The bully has been in trouble for fighting in the past. I can only assume that there are other violent teens who continue to roam the campus and threaten the safety of our children since H. J. MacDonald was unable to control this one repeat offender. This isn't Chicago, where my spouse faced such violence and discrimination and left as a result; yet our family is now faced with the same problems in New Bern, NC. Unbelievable. We wanted better for our children.

Academically speaking, I felt HJ to be middle of the road. Leadership was truly lacking. I had administration that spoke in a derogatory manner of one of my children by name to other parents. One of the guidance counselors also told my other child that he was the 'good one'. Of note, my children have not been major discipline issues for anyone. They have never been in fights, been suspended, etc. If you call the school to discuss your children, do not expect help. They are slow to return calls, and when they do they spend as little time as possible with you.

h j m is an OKAY school. Yeah there are problems that need more attenntion but all schools have their weak area. the progams I think are great, tey have many clubs such as: history, odesey of the mind, math and science clubs. So this gives anyone that is not a 'great athlete' the chance to be involed in other after school activties. Now the discipline area is one of the areas that they have to work on. Now the students that attend the school are not bad they just have problems. They just dont ack out for no reason because theres always a reason. S i would reconmend this school not as a person with secondary 'veiws of the school but a student that veiw the school 'first hand'.
