Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

There is a reason that these positive reviews are from many years ago and that there are so few. We ended up at John Adams after the boundary lines were redrawn in Scranton. We were unhappy from very early on. Many of the teachers act as if all of the families are poor and ignorant. There are no lines of communication between the school and home. The PTA is not very receptive to input. The PSSA scores are terrible, and while that may not always be a bad thing, in this case it is. The academics are subpar and the class sizes are large. The pre-school program excellent, the environment is clean. There is a character building model in place, but is poorly implemented.

John Adams, while not in the best neighborhood is a great school. The principal Mr Stefanni is wonderful, and the children adore him. He teaches them respect and discipline, something that is hard to find in a school these days. Ms. Pat is the best as well. I have no idea what I would do without her!
