The quality of the school is great and it is in great condition. Sometimes the air condition or heat will run into a problem but thats about it. The technology is very good there are computer,laptops,printers, and more. The printers do not have color ink though which is because of money. Tutoring is rarely available in middle school which it's a very important thing to have at that age.

There is very minimal bullying in Ira Jones Middle School. Most kids get along and if anyone does get bullied it is online. The safety part of the school is great the staff members do everything to keep the students safe. There are no special security measures in this school. The dogs that are guided by police do come once in a while to sniff the lockers and cars for drugs or if there if a fight which is very rare the police will handle that situation. The school nurse is pretty educated and she does everything she can to help students get the care that they need. The classes are organized well and the resources at this school are excellent.
There is a majority of clubs and sports at this school. Most kids do enjoy being involved in some kind of club or a sport because it keeps them busy. You have to be pretty committed to the clubs and organizations as much as possible. The most popular options are sports and drama club. Most of the students enjoy these the most and have a good time. With every single club you will find a staff member right beside them helping. After school activities keel the students busy after school too which is good.
