From Our Parents & Students...

When Quinn began the JAMS program she did not understand the math she was supposed to be learning in school; she was self-conscious about participating in class; and she worried about not knowing the materials. Since attending JAMS she is keeping up with the math and both her teachers have commented how much she’s improved. She is much more comfortable participating in class because she’s understand the materials more, plus she’s gained self-confidence she didn’t have before. Her new found self-confidence has spilled over into other academic subjects. JAMS has provided Quinn the math skills she needs, confidence to perform in school, and improved her concentration. JAMS has provided me peace of mind that my daughter is learning and happy. -- Sonciray Galligher
