4/6/2010parentBoth my 1st and 7th grade boys attend MJCS. This is their 2nd year. This is my oldest's 2nd charter school. He has been in the same charter school since kindergarten. So I am used to the charter schools financial limitations. MJCS does what it can with what is has. I appreciate that they focus more of their finances on education than on extracurricular activities. However, this coming school year-2010/2011-they plan on adding more of those activities. Though I may not agree with everything or all choices a school makes... I will encounter that anywhere. If the only negative people have to say about the school is in regards to them not liking the school lunches then I consider that a positive. I did read one comment where someone mentioned that the science teacher does not teach... their were some issues but they have been resolved. That teacher is no longer at the school. I would recommend MJCS to any parent and I have done so. Based on my recommendation, some of my family has enrolled their children at MJCS! Go Jaguars!!!
9/4/2009parentmy child has been a student of Maureen Joy since the 4th grade now a 7th grader. The school faulty works very hard to help the student achieve. Any misbehavior is dealt with quickly and fairly. Being a special needs child the staff always assist her and she is excelling in her reading and math scores are on the raise. I thank the staff for working with us and if Maureen Joy could go to the 12th it would be and assist to her and other students
7/23/2009otherMy child also hates this school. there are no lockers for middle school, no labs, extracurricular activities and the school lunch is awful and the school is under a bad influence
10/22/2008parentThis is my childs second year at this school, I eally like Maureen Joy and would recommend it to everyone, the classes are small and the are only teo classes per grade which gives the teachers and staff the oppertunity to address each childs needs, Dr Stien is a wonderful school dirertor and if their is a problem that you need address, he will take care of it, No there is not much extra curricular activities but there is not much funding for the charter school, so they have to pick and choose what more important, such as tutoring for children that need it so they can excel.
4/11/2008othermy child hates this school there are not any extra curricular activities and the school lunch is horrible this school should be shut down.The science teacher doe not even teach
8/30/2007studentThis school is the most awesome school here in Durham.
6/1/2007parentMy child has been a student at Maureen Joy Charter School since the second grade. She will in the eighth grade next school year. I have been very impressed with the class sizes and the teachers interest in the student totally. The staff has always been very professional and courteous to me. The school holds the student accountable when they misbehave in class, fail to turn in homework ,or have performed in a positive way,very impressive. If there was a ninth grade added I would readily send her there again. Mr Stern the new principal is 'Top Brass' and demands and expects all students to succeed. Hats off to him and the staff at the school. Thanks for allowing my child to attend and we look forward to the next school year. Denelda Walls
