My son is in the special education preK and has improved drastically in just 6 months! From 50 words in September to full phrases and sentences and its only March! Their program is excellent! Praying we can come back here next year!

Not that I experienced. We were only there for 2-3 weeks though before pushing the panic button.

We're having a wonderful experience at John Adams. The teachers and administrative staff are incredibly responsive, the Sympatico music program is excellent, and our kindergartner is thoroughly enjoying the dual language program.

John Adams has a dedicated teaching staff, few student discipline problems, and a beautiful diverse student population! This school is committed to the arts and hosts a dual language curriculum for Spanish.

John Adams is a diverse school that exposes both the student and family to multiple cultures and languages and abilities. - Over 1000 students including pre-K, Head Start and 5 classes of self contained special education. - Dual Language - EXCELLENT music program - Thanks to Mr. McCune for years of service! - Going into the 3rd year with Ms. Lee, Principal, who walked into a mountain of challenges in this school. She is working hard and it is apparent and appreciated. Our experience has been up and down. Overall the school teaches inclusion for all which is necessary for a school such as this. Parent involvement has been necessary for this to be effective. Teachers come and go in droves...it is not an easy school to work in as resources are low overall. There are amazing teachers...some not so much. Office staff and Assistant Principals are not supportive or even helpful at times.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

About as effective as teachers can be, teaching in any school in Calcutta. That would be my frank response.

I don't see, in the context I have described, how one could expect the school to be particularly successful in this endeavor.
