The school is under the leadership of a Principal and Assistant Principal. Both are very energetic and encouraging of parental involvement and seem interested in trying new activities to help students achieve. This is a change from the previous leadership. I have two kids attending this school. Student behavior issues have also decreased. Standardized test scores have risen, especially in Reading. Math still needs to improve but it's all a work in progress. I have been very happy with Jane Addams this past year. The teachers really care about the kids. Solid emphasis on prepping kids to think about college and academic achievement. I'm grateful my children are able to attend this school. Just need more parents to take some time to get involved with an activity or two throughout the year.
This school is excellent,espically the band,which I believe is alot beter than other school bands. Even though I'm a AVM and Humphery parent. Ive recently moved and so far the school year been excellent. No drama like Brooks. The teachers auctually want to see you do well.Their Sports team and coaxhes are very good influences.The Principal and assitiant princapal do a execellent job,running this school. :-)
The staff always strives for improvement in there students and takes a firm approach in better education
This school is great except for the lack of dedication of the teachers. Otherwise, compared to other district middle schools, kids here are amazing. You'll have friends quickly.
I have a son attending the school for the second year, and I believe the principal has done an excellent job in communicating with both the parents and the students. The boundary changes has helped the overcrowded classroooms but the district needs to work on more schools. I have found the teachers to be outstanding. They have always returned my calls, and already this year I have received calls and emails from teachers introducing themselves and providing the parents of their expectations and teaching styles. Their sports programs are excellent and the coaches have been a good influence on the children.
