Over the Next 5 Years
John Adams Middle School’s current student enrollment exceeds the state recommended operational capacity by over 40 students. Referendum improvements for John Adams Middle School would include the discontinued use of trailers currently being used as classrooms.
John Adams Middle School has a current District Practice Operational Capacity of 918 including its two trailer classrooms. Its 5-Year enrollment projection is 1,092 students, which results in a projected capacity gap of 174 students plus 41 trailer students. The new rooms shall increase the District Practice capacity to accommodate the gap and improve operations.
The additions and renovations are not only improving the students’ quality of education, but also improving the community. The overcrowding is due to the fact that many people want to move to Edison because of the school district. However, if the schools are forced to utilize more trailers and come up with more short-term solutions, less people will want to move to Edison, resulting in the decrease of the value of your home. This referendum will create a better learning environment and continue to positively affect the community.
