    "JAMS is not as great as people want you to believe. It is divided by races. There are always fights and bullying. The district does not want anyone to know that so they fudge their numbers. Some of the staff are unprofessional and no student should have a teacher who has a accent that no one can understand. But it is the typical school and if you post something that is not good they will remove it"

    "John Adams Middle School is an extremely academic-centralized school, with only about 1/80 students participating in dances and other fundraising events. Hoops for Heart and bake sales always make money, though. The teachers at JAMS are varied. Some, the best, are the greatest people. 2 current teachers are in the armed forces. One of them sent out a notice at Christmas time, asking for all money spent on gifts to him to instead be donated to charity, since he had all he needed. Others are absolutely out of their minds. Anyone who went/goes to JAMS knows what I'm talking about. JAMS is also rivals with Woodrow Wilson. Overall, John Adams is a great middle school."

    "JOHN ADAMS MIDDLE SCHOOL IS A GREAT SCHOOL UNLESS YOUR CHILD IS A SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD. THEY STICK ALL CHILDREN IN ONE CLASS TUCKED AWAY NEATLY NO MATTER WHAT THE ILLNESS. THEY HAVE ONE CLASS FOR DOWN SYNDROME , AUTISM, RETARDATION NO MATTER HOW MILD. ANY LEARNING DISABILITY, IN ONE CLASS WITH A TEACHER THAT IS NEW AND THEREFORE CAN NOT TEACH THEM ALL . IT IS A TRAVESTY AND I KNOW BECAUSE MY GRANDSON IS ONE OF THEM. THEY ARE USING HIM AS A SUCCESS STORY BECAUSE HE IS FAR MORE ADVANCE THAN THE REST OF THE CLASS. THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE WAS FAR MORE ADVANCED WHEN HE GO THERE BECAUSE HE HAS A DIFFERENT ISSUE. I HAVE BEEN DENIED HIS RIGHT FOR OUT OF DISTRICT PLACEMENT, AS WELL AS HIM BEING PLACED IN A MORE ADAPTIVE CLASS (WHICH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT DOESN'T HAVE) IF YOU CAN CHOOSE ANOTHER SCHOOL DO SO. HOWEVER , IF YOU CAN AVOID EDISON ALL TOGETHER , IT WOULD BE YOUR BEST OPTION. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW EDISON MADE IT TO GREAT SCHOOL SITES, BUT LOOK AT TALK TO SOME OF THE PEOPLE EDUCATED HERE AND YOU WILL SEE THAT IT WAS AN ERROR."

    "My child went there from 7th grade to 8th grade. She absolutely loved it.. She mad so many friends that will last her a lifetime. The teachers were always there for her and had excellent teaching skills. Her grades went up after I put her in public school. The diversity of the school is great as well. The activities and opportunities available to the kids are outstanding. My daughter did not want to leave John Adams and move on to high school. She loved every moment of her middle school experience. I as a parent am happy too!"
