    Private School Applications - JAMS

    Private School Applications

    At Jane Addams Middle School (JAMS) we receive a substantial amount of private high school recommendation and transcripts requests. In order to process them timely we ask that parents/guardians follow the guidelines below.

    To ensure our timely response application requests must be turned into us by December 1st. We cannot guarantee that requests will be completed if submitted after December 1st. It will be at the teacher’s discretion, if they have time available.

    School Records

    Electronic Applications

    For private schools that use an online application system, please have the records request sent to:

    Paper (offline) Applications

    For private schools that use paper applications please drop off a signed application form along with a private school addressed envelope with four (4) stamps to Main Office by December 1st. We will need a prepared envelope for each school if there are multiple schools.

    What will be included in School Records:

    • Progress Report (1st Quarter – this year)
    • Transcripts
    • Standardized testing
    • Attendance Report (this year)
    • Discipline Report

    Teacher Recommendations

    Your requests for a teacher recommendation should be addressed to the teacher from whom you require a recommendation. Please provide a standard business sized envelope (addressed to the applicant school with adequate postage to cover at least two ounces.) This is required for each school you are applying.

    It is also courteous to ask the teachers in advance (via e-mail) if they would be willing to fill out the forms, before dropping the forms off in their mailbox at the school.

    Please submit requests early. The teachers and staff will process recommendations as time permits during their normal work schedule.

    If you have any more questions please contact the Registrar at:
