Six 8th grade students took part in a MathCounts competition on January 30th. Vignesh Ginde, Swapneil Singh, Brian Chan, Divyesh Trivedi, Kaushik Isukapalli and Adhvik Kanagala.  MathCounts is a math competition held all over the nation for middle school students; students take part as individuals or as a team. There were 23 teams from Middlesex, Union and Monmouth counties with over 200 students. Vignesh, Swapneil, Brian and Divyesh formed a team.  Out of 23 schools our students came in second as a team and will compete as a team and as individuals at the NJ state level held at Rutgers in March. In the individual competitions, Vignesh came in 3rd and Swapneil came in 5th from over 200 students. Vignesh, Swapneil, Brian and Kaushik were in the top 10% of students in the individual competitions.

What is Makerspace you might ask?
To describe Makerspace in simple fashion, it is an area that allows for creativity and innovation to occur. For example, within this makerspace area students have the freedom to design, engineer, fabricate, create, build and collaborate. Makerspaces provide students with a place to tinker and develop something that possibly wouldn’t be possible to create without a space with resources. Help us get our own Makerspaces started!

Welcome to John Adams Middle School

      

      Walking through the hallways of John Adams Middle School, the collaboration of close to 1,000 Knights as they debate, investigate, analyze, question, and surf their way through the exploration of learning is prevalent! John Adams Middle School is committed to inspire and empower students to reach their full potential and become respectful, responsible, productive citizens and future leaders in a global society. The John Adams Knights are lead by a supportive staff of 90 educational leaders, many with advanced degrees. Our diverse student population exposes learners to a multi-cultural community whose values, customs, languages, and experiences are all accepted and celebrated.
 

      The academic arena at John Adams Middle School is filled with a comprehensive, differentiated curriculum that meets the needs of all learners and challenges students, while providing the proper support necessary to achieve. The team concept within each grade level provides opportunities for self-discovery and growth; students learn about one another and build relationships that are nurtured and endured.  Classrooms are filled with interactive, wireless technology that supports hands-on, authentic learning experiences – reflecting future promises of workplace readiness. The energy and excitement that fill the classrooms and hallways is contagious!

      

      Whether interested in becoming athletes, artists, musicians, writers, scientists, and environmentalists, there is something for everyone at John Adams Middle School. Students showcase their talents and interests both in and out of the classroom setting through their participation in the plethora of extra-curricular activities available to them. Our school has a variety of extra-curricular offerings where many of our students participate in both clubs and sports. John Adams Middle School believes that children need to be involved in order to become well-rounded and productive citizens. Our students also understand and appreciate the value of community service and forging connections with the John Adams family.
 

      John Adams Middle School embodies a sense of community and belonging that students, staff, and parents foster and enjoy. The six pillars of character shine through student interactions daily; their knowledge of these pillars becomes obvious through their respect and understanding for one another. Learning to celebrate one another for similarities and differences is what makes John Adams Middle School extraordinary!
