Jane Addams Middle School Reviews
AN awesome school that would lead you to the right path :)
Jane Addams Middle School is average. So are the teachers. They don't spend much time after school if students need help. My daughter had a pretty average year. They say there are no gangs, but there are. She was picked on by kids for being a newcomer.
Jane Addams Middle School clearly sets the standard for all others Schools to aspire to become!!
Whether your a parent or a student...you couldn't ask for more, than you will receive upon entering the Lawndale School District and attending this extraordinary Middle school.
Led by Frank Noyes, a Principal who exceeds all others, you will find an environment dedicated and devoted to meeting each, individual, student's needs; eagerly inspiring the highest educational levels and overall development of its students.
Accompanied by an equally irreplaceable staff, armed with the same earnest, enthusiastic, caring, cooperative, attentive, fearless, desire to inspire, teach and guide, each and every individual student within their reach..you are ensured your child is always "in good hands".
My daughter is an 8th grader and I know just by talking to her that she has enjoyed being a part of the school and has enjoyed working with all her teachers as well as office staff and her counselor Ms. Saldana and really enjoyed working with Mrs. Elizabeth (cheer coach). As her mother I am very grateful to all the teachers & staff that has help my daughter grow-up to a wonderful kid. Now my other daughter will be added to the Jane Addams family next year 09-10, I know that she will have a good time being educated by the great teachers next year. Thank you for all the support you gave to my daughter.
My son was in a near by school district before attending Jane Adams and I can honestly say there is no comparison. Jane Adams Middle School ensures that everyone is provided with the best education possible. Everyone from the Principal to the teachers are really involved in making sure all students are given the best. I am truly thankful with both the school and Lawndale Unified for making my son's education so special.
I think this school is far beyond the expected levels of a regular middle school. Everyone from the Principal to the teachers are involved in ensuring that everyone gets and meets proper educational goals. My son has attended this school since it opened two years ago and I can honestly say I could not be any happier. Thank you Lawndale Unified for providing my children with a great educational experience.
I LOVE THIS SCHOOL ITS THE BEST! THEY HAVE THE BEST STAFF EVER!
