Welcome to James Lick Middle School | Bienvenidos a JLMS

On behalf of everyone at James Lick Middle School, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our homepage and welcome you to visiting our school! As the "school touring" season begins, we would like to provide you with some information about who we are and what we do. 

 

JLMS is a comprehensive middle school in the San Francisco Unified School District serving students in 6th through 8th grade, nestled in beautiful Noe Valley. We offer a wide variety of programs such as general education, Spanish immersion and special education (mild/moderate strand). Our school currently serves about 590 students and our demographics are 74% Latino, 15% Caucasian, 6% African-American and 5% other (various Asian and non-Asian backgrounds). We are also a Title I school and have about 74% of our students on free or reduced lunch. Approximately 35% of our students are also identified as English Language Learners and they participate in explicit, English Language Development classes throughout the day. 

 

Our school contains an 8 period day, very unique from other schools, and because of this, our students typically have 2 elective classes on a daily basis. Physical Education is provided on a daily basis too and students participate in both team type sporting activities and individual health and wellness activities. Our gymnasium is equipped with various aerobic workout machines and our PE staff provides a rigorous program that incorporates the use of those machines regularly. Students in our 6th grade have an opportunity to participate in varied Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) programs on a 12 week rotational cycle, while 7th grade students participate in a semester long program and 8th grade is a year long commitment. Our VAPA department is comprised of 4 teachers, offering Art, Dance, Drama and Music/Band. We also offer other academic elective classes such as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), AVID and coming soon, Coding. Students identified as English Language Learners are required to take an English Language Development (ELD) class in lieu of one elective. Students in our Spanish immersion program take Spanish Language Arts, Spanish Social Studies and are required to take English Language Arts, taking the place of one elective class. Students in our Special Education program participate in varied programs that meet the requirements listed on their IEP. We offer two models at JLMS, a self-contained model for students requiring a more intensive academic approach and we have a co-teaching model where students participate in a less restrictive environment where they receive support in a general education class with the support of their special education teacher. New to Lick this year is a Newcomer Pathway for our students who recently arrived in the country (2 years or less). Those students participate in a self-contained setting where the primary focus is learning English through the lens of the core materials.

 

We are fortunate to have a full-time librarian who supports both our students and faculty with literacy and technology needs. Our instructional coach provides ongoing support to all of our teaching staff in all areas of teaching. We also have our after-school program Jamestown that provides both academic and enrichment programs for our students from 3:45pm to 6:30pm daily.  Many Community Based Organizations (CBO's) provide varied support services for our students, families and staff throughout the year as well. As you begin to tour the many schools in San Francisco, we hope this information provides you with some details and highlights of what James Lick Middle School has to offer. We look forward to seeing you on the tours! 

 

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school. Tours begin Monday, November 3rd, 2014 at 9am. No reservation required.

Actualmente nuestra escuela atiende a unos 590 estudiantes y nuestros datos demográficos son el 74% latinos, 15% caucásicos, 6% afroamericanos y 5% otros (varios orígenes asiáticos y no asiáticos). Somos también una escuela de Título I y que alrededor del 74% de nuestros estudiantes reciben el almuerzo gratis oa precio reducido. Aproximadamente el 35% de nuestros estudiantes también son identificados como estudiantes del idioma inglés y participan en clases explícitas, Desarrollo del Idioma Inglés durante todo el día.

Nuestra escuela contiene una jornada de 8 periodos, muy único de otras escuelas, y debido a esto, los estudiantes suelen tener 2 clases electivas sobre una base diaria. Educación Física se ofrece a diario también y los estudiantes participan en actividades tanto deportivas de tipo equipo y las actividades de salud y bienestar individuales. Nuestro gimnasio está equipado con varias máquinas de ejercicios aeróbicos y  nuestro personal PE ofrece un riguroso programa que incorpora el uso de esas máquinas con regularidad. Los estudiantes en nuestro 6 º grado tienen la oportunidad de participar en programas variados de las Bellas Artes (VAPA) en un ciclo de rotación 12 semanas, mientras que los estudiantes de 7º grado participan en un programa a largo semestre y octavo grado es un compromiso a largo de un año. Nuestro departamento VAPA se compone de 4 profesores, ofreciendo Arte, Danza, Drama y Música / Banda. También ofrecemos otras clases electivas académicas tales como STEAM (Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería, Arte y Matemáticas), AVID y próximamente, Codificación. Los estudiantes identificados como estudiantes del idioma inglés están obligados a tomar una clase de Desarrollo del Idioma Inglés (ELD) en lugar de una optativa. Los estudiantes en nuestro programa de inmersión en español toman Artes Lenguaje en Español, Estudios Sociales en Español y están obligados a tomar artes lenguaje en inglés, tomando el lugar de una clase electiva. Los estudiantes en nuestro programa de Educación Especial participan en variados programas que cumplan los requisitos establecidos en su IEP. Ofrecemos dos modelos en JLMS, un modelo autónomo de los estudiantes que requieren un enfoque más académico intensivo y tenemos un modelo de co-enseñanza donde los estudiantes participan en un ambiente menos restrictivo donde reciben apoyo en una clase de educación general con el apoyo de su maestro de educación especial. ¿Nuevo en Lick este año es un programa para nuestros estudiantes que recientemente llegaron al país (2 años o menos). Los estudiantes participan en una auto-contenida ajuste donde el objetivo principal es aprender Inglés a través de la lente de los materiales del programa regular.

Tenemos la suerte de tener un bibliotecario de tiempo completo que apoya tanto a nuestros estudiantes y profesores con necesidades de alfabetización y tecnología. Nuestro entrenador de instrucción ofrece un apoyo constante a todo nuestro personal docente en todos los ámbitos de la enseñanza. También tenemos nuestro programa después de clases Jamestown que ofrece dos programas académicos y de enriquecimiento para nuestros estudiantes de 15:45-18:30 todos los días. Muchas organizaciones de base comunitaria (OBC) también ofrecen servicios de apoyo variadas para nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal durante todo el año. Al comenzar a recorrer las muchas escuelas en San Francisco, esperamos que esta información le proporciona algunos detalles y aspectos más destacados de lo que James Lick Middle School tiene para ofrecer. Esperamos contar con su presencia en las giras!

All students and parents should use the crosswalks when crossing the street. Be aware of traffic around the school.  Students should be dropped off at the white zone on Noe Street.  There are crossing guards at Clipper and Noe as well as Castro and 25th Street.  Please DO NOT drop off on Clipper Street- it  is a very busy street.  Cars parked in the white zone on Noe Street will be ticketed by SF DPT as this is a drop off only zone.

Tip: there is less traffic around the school at 8:15 am vs 8:25 am.
