    I am a student at JLS and i love it. The teachers are great and they focus on making sure kids get the concepts in what they are teaching. It is a very happy environment and the they make school fun. JLS balances the fun with academics perfectly! I support JLS all the way. I encourage families to get their kids in!

    I attended JL Stanford Middle School as a student and now as a staff member. Through all of my experiences I can confidently say that JLS has some of the most empowering and gifted teachers that young minds could ask for. The school leadership shines not only through the strong and dedicated principal but through the students as well. JLS provides avenues to support every kind of student learner. They provide some of the most stimulating and challenging academic programs out there. They also provide different outlets for children with learning behavior emotional and social needs. JLS is a remarkable school that helps feed the minds of the worlds smartest individuals.

    This is a good school and you learn a lot. I've made lots of good friends but there can be a lot of homework on some days and none on others. The teachers are wonderful but it feels like a pretty typical school.

    Heavy involvement on the part of the teachers. Heavy homework load perhaps too heavy. After school activities are keen...YCS in particular. You can skip the bi-yearly dance.
