    We have been pleased with the academics at this school and with the number of accommodations that our daughter has received. I read the other two reviews and do not understand how a parent can say they don't get updates about their child's work. Parents can look at the skyward access at any time and see their child's grades and they can be notified daily or weekly by the system if papers are missing or grades are poor. As to the silence rule, this is not true when the kids are outside for parent pickup. Kids sit with their friends and chat and no one yells at them. My granddaughter tells me her teachers don't yell and rarely raise their voices.

    I am just outraged at how this school is ran. The kids are made to walk on lines on the floor in complete silence all day, including after school, I have walked up to pick my child up and there was a teacher yelling at them to be quiet after school outside while they were waiting to be picked up! They are yelled out, told to shut up, they are given conduct marks for ANYTHING other than complete obedience. The kids are broke down and made to beleive they are menances to society if they do anything wrong. I wish I had enough room to type up the sheet that they gave my daughter to write beacuse she sat in a different seat other than her assigned, and btw she has not been in trouble any other times. It was degrading and they wanted her to state what a awful child she is. I blame it on the principle. This is how she wants her school ran. I'm not saying that all of the teachers are this way, there are a few great ones there that do not participate in this military school type of learning but then the other teachers put those teachers down and point out how wrong they are. If moving to Pearland please dont ignore the reviews on this school like I did!

    My daughter has complained to me about her teachers not wanting to help her. The teachers DO NOT send you any update on your childs performance if there are issues. it was not until I got her report card that I found out she was struggling. There is strict discipline which I love and children need to learn how to follow the rules. The principle is very stern when it come to behavior and I love that about this school. I do feel that the teachers need to go through some kind of re-training classes to learn how to interact more with the children on a loving/caring bases.

    I am a student in Sam Jamison right now, and i have to say that i am NOT happy in this school. It's some more than others but in average i'm not liking it. It is very restricted and lives on rules. Its like Elementary but without fun and has lockers and 3 teachers. All we do for academics is paper work. If we didn't have so much paper work we could save a forest. i don't have an idea why or how people say that it is one of the best schools. The faculty is very... volume sensitive. The classes that i know have silent lunch, also assigned seats facing in one direction. Which i think is unfair because lunch is the only time to enjoy ourselves, this was assigned by the principal. When walking down a hallway, i saw a banner that says "welcome to paradise, Jamison Middle School" i laugh and think with my friends that it is a totally opposite. In the students point of view.

    My child hates this school! If it was not for choir and a great music teacher I don't think she would be willing to keep going there. The principal has her high and mighty ideas of what a school should be and "look" like. I think she missed her calling as a drill instructor. I have heard from multiple children and my own about teachers belittling the childrenon a daily basis. My child is too afraid to ask questions for fear of repercussions from these mean teachers. This is not a good learning environment.

    We had our daughter here for fifth grade and are moving her to a different school next year. The administration's top priority seems to be enforcing the dress code. There is very little engaging or interactive learning, it's mostly worksheets. Many of the teachers belittle and even bully the students, and when we asked the principal about it she responded that her staff is "old school". If you are looking for a school that will challenge and engage your child, Jamison is not for you.

    I was relatively disappointed with this school and my child's homeroom teacher in particular. The administration as well as a few teachers seem more interested in looking proper over the well being of the students. The assistant principal was unapproachable and my child's teacher was extremely insensitive and unfair to her students. I also asked to have my child tested for GT (because he was in a GT program at his previous school) and I had to harrass them to find out the results. I was disappointed with his 5th grade year and he was also. His Science and Language Arts teacher were wonderful though.

    Jamison is currently making a huge turn around. The new administration has come in and created a disciplined and academic learning environment. They are defifnitely headed to the top. There are also many wonderful extracurricular activities and teachers who love love what they're doing. I highly recommend this school!

    Some good veteran teachers there. Biggest problem- new administration and new teachers every year.

    Jamison's motto is 'Where children come first.' As a teacher there, I see this principle put into action. Students are pulled out for tutoring, extra tutors are brought into classrooms - everything is done to ensure that these students will be succesful.
