We originally wanted our daughter to go to Miller Perry, but due to rezoning we had to apply to John Adams before the possibility of being accepted as an out of zone for MP. We ended up going to John Adams just to make things easier and we have not regretted our decision. It is an excellent school with wonderful teachers. The staff has worked with us on any issues we've had. Very happy here.
