I'm a proud graduate from John Adams Middle School. I had a wonderful experience and just about some of the best teachers ever. This school has great staff, and a very good responsible principal. Even the deans try their very best keeping everything under control. Thanks to my teachers I am now in a Magnet High School and on my way to a great university. Valeria Zaragoza, student

I have first hand knowledge of this school. Things have changed since the school changed from a year round calendar to a traditional calendar. The school has seen an increase in graffiti. The two deans are overwhelmed with the amount referrals. Parent involvement is low. The teachers and administrators are trying but the problems affecting this community are just too great.

Plain and simple, great school for the area that it is in. These are the best teachers that a school that is in the infamous 'ghetto' can get. Particularly the magnet program that really does whatever he can to get its students prepared for the high school and even college experience with advanced classes

Teachers really help student prepare for high school in the best was possible, tutoring is available and winter and summer school. Many parents are involved, through helpiing at home and at school. During fund-raisers and meeting to dinners set up, many parent become very involved. The physical education department is very well established to try to maintain student at an adequate physical state. The Magnet program is one of the bests in Los Angeles in my opinion. This is a very well established and functioning program where students are able to progress to great high schools such as Venice High School and Bravo Medical High School.
