I come to John Adams and I personally think it is a very good school that cares for it's student's education. Although I wish that it would handle bullies and other negative acts in the school better.
Generally fine teachers, though a few slackers. Principal desn't seem to support or encourage the whole staff. It would improve everything if she did.
John Adams is the worst school I have dealt with. The teachers do not communicate with the parents. They all seem to team up and attack the student instead of helping and coming up with an action plan to better the student. Very unorganized.
this is one of the best schools ive been to! the teachers are great and fun... i love john adams, and im a panther!!!!!
i think john adams is wayyy to strict on dress code. im a 4.00 student and i follow the rules ans atuff but the dress is too strict and sould let go some rules.
Ou know wat i agree with theese last few comments the dress code is way to serious we would be 1st not 3rd in greatest schools if it werent for them worrying about dress code and they blaim it on the parents they are complaining about this not agreeing..... i love this school but faculty grow up i understand you dont want the cloths to be gang realated but stop worrying about it there is more important things than dress code... Try test scores for example,our education.......
john adams is the best middle school in albuquerque i only been there for one year and ive had an honor role everytime there was one if you ask me i think its the best school ever but some of the teachers i had gave me to much problems like ms.gutierrez the sixth grade social studies teacher but one of the best teachers there is mr.newcomb a 7th grade teacher he helps out all the kids and is a really funny and cool guy and great to get along with.!
John Adams is one of the worst schools I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. If they worried about something other than dress code and who gets to wear jeans on Friday, maybe the students could get an education. Everything about the school is unorganized. The right had does not know what the left is doing.
John Adams is a great school. Though like any other school it does have its problems. Dress Code, is one of the many problems with John Adams. A lot of teachers worry too much about the dress code. One teacher spent 10 minutes of class waiting for a kid to tuck his shirt in. I really don't see the problem with it, its not like were breaking the law or anything. If it wasn't for that John Adams would be the best school to go to. =]
I had my son here for a year, thats when i finally realized this school has way to many problems, this school worries on dress code more than other larger problems like in other comments mentioned. This school is an older school also in need of inprovements, I sent my son to Jimmy Carter, several blocks away. It is in fact a lot more safe, and the schools campus is in better shape. Some of the teachers at John Adams are infact great, but they would never keep in contact with me.
I agree with review that I just read about this school worring too much about dress code and not enough other things. My daughter , who is a straight A student, got her sweatet taken away from her because it was a pull over. I thought that was wrong.
The faculty worries about dress code too much and a lot of the teachers are cool but some of them are way too strict
I fell that some special needs students do not recieve appropriate academic and or emotional or psycho social interventions even when stipulated to by IEP guidlines. It appears as though the administration does not want to own up to their current substard treatment of such issues and this saddens me. I am taking my child out of district to another school!
