The mission of John Adams Middle School is to provide a dynamic, multi-faceted, educational experience which allows each student to maximize his/her potential: academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. John Adams programs will be based on shared decision-making by interested community members, parents, teachers, counselors, and administrators to meet the unique needs of our diverse, early adolescent population

This local school is going to be an on going project. This is our first contest to mural with them. We also did a tile installation for them. This is on another link below. They came to me after I finished the mural with the dilemma of having made these tiles with the student body in 2013/2014 and never could figure out how to get them installed. I did it with my guy within a few weeks – in one day. It’s amazing. The kids and art teacher, Jen laid them out ready for us to move them to the wall.
