Jordan vs JLS
Original post made by zs on Feb 29, 2012
We just moved here last year, and don't know much about the middle school, and are wondering the pros and cons of each middle school.

They are both great schools and I believe about 1/2 to 1/3 of JLS attends Paly. The negative of going to Jordan would be loosing contact with his elementary friends. You can request a transfer which may or may not be granted based on how full the schools are.

This is something you should have considered before buying your house. I suggest touring the schools to get a feel for the children and schools. Or see if your child can shadow at the middle schools.

Our son went to JLS and then on to Paly in 2010. It worked out very well. Half of his JLS class went to Paly by the way, including his good friends, from our immediate neighborhood. JLS was a very good school. We were very happy with it and are now very happy with Paly.
Our oldest child went to Jordan years ago, before boundaries were changed. There is a 10 year gap between the 2 children, so my opinion may be a bit out-of-date on this, but we liked JLS in 2007-2010 much better than we liked Jordan in 1997-2000.
