Academic excellence in a structured, supportive setting. From the principals to teachers to support staff JA provides a consistent, supportive environment for student learning and parent involvement. If you are interested in the highest level of academic achievement this is the school for you. If you want consistent, fair, firm discipline this is the school for you. If you want compassionate, caring teachers and administrators who go the extra mile, this is the school for you. If you want your child to have the opportunity to earn up to 2 semesters of full college credit during high school, this is the school for you. The school also provides high quality extra-curriculars to round out a great education. I am just a regular parent--not on the staff or the board-- with high expectations for any school. JA has exceeded them all. Our experience is with the secondary. I cannot recommend this school highly enough.

JA HS is a great place for a wide range of students. Our daughter is on a more advanced path, but the school strives to teach kids HOW to learn, while providing a strong teacher and student support framework. Considering the small size, plenty of 'involvement' opps exist - athletics @ JA or other local schools is encouraged, but so are more eccentric groups and pursuits.

This is a great school. We have had all four of our children attend this campus. (K-12) We are quite pleased with the quality of the education that they have received. As for homework, Time Management is a part of life, a part that is emphasized. As an involved parent, I know that time is given to complete the assignments, but some students feel it s better spent as a social hour(s). Yes there is homework and assignments to complete. (Gasp) Life goes on and those that learn that managing the minutes of your day, simply leads to a more successful and prosperous life. A quite simple fact of life. This is an academically rigorous school period. Read the previous sentences again. Sports are secondary to education, as it should be. (How many people do you know that get paid to play sports?) As in everything what you put into it is what you get out of it. The school is a tool that can help your child succeed, but it will not do your job. Academics and intelligence are valued here, (just like in the real world of work). All around this is a school for those that value an academically enriched education. Since it is a small school most of the students who start will have friends until they graduate. JA is a safe, secure and comfortable operation. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to become involved in the school. Peer pressure is present, but the pressure is to excel and be the best you can be. But as with life Choices have consequences. Great school for those who value, understand and chose success.
