From Our Parents & Students...

Since Joshua has been attending JAMS his math skills have greatly improved. However, the improvement is not limited to just the math skills. His concentration has increased and his memory is also better. He is more confident and self-assured. He even brought his abacus to school one day to demonstrate how to use it. (His classmates were fascinated.) I am delighted that Josh is working with Ms. Sakabayashi. I am happy to endorse her program. -- Roberta Kaplan Israel
