James Lick Middle School Reviews
James Lick is a great school for my child. We came from a private school that was kindergarten through 5th grade. By the time 5th grade was ending, we knew that she wasn't advancing or eager to go to school. Since the 6th grade, we've seen improvement (4.0) and additional help with the Avid program, helping her to stay focus and prepare not just for high school but college as well. Also, great P.E. and music department. If i had known more about public schools, my older child might have done better.
James Lick Middle School is an amazing school. When I first went to San Francisco, it became my home away from Bequia. The teachers were a great help to me and students were so friendly and kind. When I had to return home I was so sad to leave James Lick.
I think James Lick Middle School is great because it has an emersion program and hands on tutoring with your teacher.
