My daughter attended JAMS. 6th-8th grade (2012-2013) and we loved this school. The principal went above and beyond to help keep us informed. The teachers were always knowledgeable, helpful and empathetic. Thanks, Jerstad!
Jerstad-Agerholm is a public city middle school of over 700 students. In 2008, things did seem to slip on the administration side. This year there is a new principal who really supports the school, staff and administration and she also knows how to get things done. Much has improved this year. Parental involvement can still be a problem, but you have to look at where the student population comes from. There is a smaller, but very active PTSA at the school which enhances the experience for the students. The principal has stated she would like to be at JAMS for a while-more than the year we were getting from the previous 4 principals! Support this school and give it a chance.
