JA is a great school that I would recommend for anyone who wants to attend. This school can make a huge impact on your life academically and socially. Staff and faculty are really nice,and so.are the students they are just like family to me and I love each and everyone of them. JA also has a huge number of cool electives and school clubs. I love it and if your child wants to attend I say "GO FOR IT" I HOPE THIS WAS HELP
