My daughter is in the sixth grade at JAMS. I do not recommend this school to parents of children in Special Education. I feel that this school could be much better if the financial resources that are available were implemented. I am however impressed by the music program. This is the only thing that impresses me about this school.
I went to this school for the first 2 weeks but then dropped out to be with my friends at Paul Revere. I honestly don;t know why. I loved John Adams, it was so fun and the teachers were absolutely excekllent and I strongly reccomend this school. Small class size, great teachers, and overall excellence. I am in 6th grade and made a big mistake switching. But JAMS is just great.
I moved to the Santa Monica school district because they are known to be excellent schools. My child is not making the same kind of academic progress that she made in our prior home of Arlington, Virginia, and the teachers don't seem to have the same interest in the students. There seems to be a general apathy between the students and the teachers, but overall, the school appears to be better than the options in Los Angeles.
The school is good overall. The teachers are dedicated in the progress of your child. They have a really good website. You can check your childs grades and assignments. Very informative.
I have 4 children at JAMS and I truly love the results given of my 3 eight graders of their last 2yrs at JAMS, I have a 6th grader and she loves JAMS especially her teachers who put so much into the learning and how the teachers keep into contact with parents. thank you so much teachers and staff for everything you do for our kids.
JAMS is a great school! My son has some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever met. He is involved their music program,Ms.Woo and Ms.Hardisty are amazing,encouraging teachers.The science magnet program is incredible going to Yosemite in 7th grade and Astro camp in 8th, along with everything else they do throughout the year. Our experience has been one of a private school without the eliteism. And its incedibly multiculteral, a great reflection of our world today.
