From Our Parents & Students...

I attended JAMS from age 7 to 14 and my skills in Abacus have helped me achieve a level of skill three years ahead of the math classes I've taken. In fact, when I graduated I was valedictorian with a perfect 4.0 GPA and I achieved a perfect math score on the SAT, which gained me Oregon State's Presidential Scholarship. Sensei was a great teacher and person, teaching every class with exuberance and making it fun. She truly cares about all of her students and I will use the skills I learned for the rest of my life. -- Alvin Yu (OSU : Presidential Scholar)
