About This School

James Jordan Middle School is located in Northridge, CA and is one of 959 schools in Los Angeles Unified School District. It is a charter school that serves 255 students in grades 5-8.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See James Jordan Middle School's test results to learn more about school performance.

James Jordan Middle School Reviews

By a Former Student on

This school is a very good school I would recommend this school if your child has gotten kicked out of school or is having a difficult time in school. This school has three pillars at this school are character community and college. The teachers in this school tell the students to have character to be polite , to be friendly, and to respect their peers. This school when they tell their students to be apart of th community what they mean is to help the teachers or help the students be nice. When the teachers tell their students to have college they mean to strive your best and to never give up on your dreams to go to university and to never give up on themselves. At James Jordan the teachers don't give up on the students they will give up their breaks,lunches,mornings,evenings,and Saturday mornings to tutor students. Their was this one time in eighth grade where the students who where failing 2 out of their 4 core classes would have to go into the classrooms at nutrition,lunch,and Saturday mornings to make up work just to get their grades up. James Jordan staff and teachers do their best to keep kids from bullying each other and they are very effective at doing so. James Jordan has also changed many kids life around I remember some of my friends had no thoughts of Going to university or even college but they said that James Jordan changed their mind about going to university.i also had friends who did really follow the rules inside or outside of school but later I started to see that they started to follow the rules inside and outside of school. I love the teachers  and staff at James Jordan they have all helped me very much.

Thank you,

Ms.Alvarado,Coach Alvarado,Ed.D.Marsh,Ms.Enriquez,Ms.Palomino, Mr.Lopez,Mr.Macias,Mr.Barnett

I have know good teachers, But nothing can compair to the teaching staff at James Jordan Middle School. I Don't mean just one teacher, I mean the whole staff. My son has strungle with school since 1st grade. The staff here not only teaches the subject, but aslo teach self repect and pride in everything my son does. They are not just teaching m son to achieve good grades, they also teach him way to succeed in life later in life. The staff goes above and beyound what any other teacher ever did for him before.

Thank you,  Ms. Reyes, Mr. lopez, Ms. A, Ms. Peterson, Ms. Cater, Ms. Ferrant, Ed.D. Marsh. and to the rest of the staff at James Jordan Middle School

This school is a joke. Needs to be shut down. Dirty, messy, classrooms are makeshift, bland, do not demonstrate a quality educational atmosphere. Teachers are sub-par, under-qualified. Cult-like atmosphere.. these so-called educators think they best thing going when in fact they are undisciplined, disheveled, lacking in class, rude, mean and make a mockery of education. It is sad that so many teachers are forced to move out of state or retire and idiots like these get our tax dollars!. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. They deserve an good education that this charter joke cannot provide.
