Awesome school, my daughter went there in 2005. she is very smart but kind of an under achiever. After three years she decided to test into St. Pius and was accepted, thanks to her preparation at John Adams. The schools in this area get a bad name. If your child wants to learn they will at any school whether it's on the west side or NE Heights.
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.
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. =]
