Jane Addams Middle School (JAMS) has been a great experience for me in the past three years. I am in a pilot group who are in and advanced math class. We took Algebra-1 in seventh grade, and we are now taking Geometry for eighth grade. I am the top student in my classes! I had the great opportunity to be granted a full scholarship to Harvard-Westlake School through the Young Eisner Scholars (YES) program. It was only made possible at JAMS, and with the few months remaining I will miss every staff and student there. By all means, this is an ideal school is a child wants to take advantage of the great things they can achieve. Otherwise, it would be a waste. All the teachers are supportive and have tutoring sessions made where a teacher or a student, like myself, can tutor anyone who wants the help. All in all, JAMS is a spectacular middle school! It all reflects upon the environment the staff creates for us students.

This school is a great school, I have two daughters here now. Teachers are very professionals. The principal is just like a big dad for the students. He's a father figure no doubt of that.

For the area not being as affluent as say Redondo or Manhattan, I really think the teachers do a great job with the kids here. My son has attended for a year(in lawndale schools since first grade). I am happy with it. He has a learning disability and the teacher he has is incredibly patient with the kids and takes out extra time to help. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 is because there is the occasional trouble maker. More than that, the staff member in the office is a douche. I would expect when I parent walks in, they would get treated like an adult. She has on more than one occasion had a tone of voice, look, and given statements as if she's reprimanding me. lol It's silly. I just ignore it and keep cordial, but I secretly hope they replace her which would put this school at an almost 5 star rating in my eyes.

Jane Addams Middle School is an awesome school! I have been there ever since it became a middle school, and now that I'm in 8th grade, I am ready for high school. I still have about 7 months left of 8th grade, but I know that JAMS will help me make the best of it. :] The teachers really know what they're doing, and what we learn will be understood my anyone. The GATE and Honors classes are the best! It may seem like hard work, but all it is is just work that we really understand. We, honors student, also work a a faster pace than others at times. Other classes learn at their own speed, but that's only because of the students. As a COLLEGE PREP SCHOOL, Jane Addams Middle School has really helped many students achieve what they've always wanted to achieve.
