Adams Grade School, Inc was conceived in 1961 by Pastor and Mrs. J. B. Adams. Pastor Adams initially worked at the South Pacific Railroad (Englewood Plant). The economy took a turn for the worst and Pastor Adams was laid off from South Pacific Railroad. Being unemployed was not an option for Pastor Adams because he had an obligation to provide for his wife and four daughters. The Adams family explored multiple alternatives and concluded that a second career in childcare was the path the Lord was leading them down. Matthew 19:14 says, “Jesus said, let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to people who are like these children”. This scripture was near and dear to the loving couple. Their prayers and trust in God led them to take a leap of faith into the second phase of their lives.
The J. B. Adams School is currently under the leadership of the children of Pastor and Mrs. J. B. Adams. The director (Joyce Adams) and the assistant director (Shiyolanda Griffin), who are college educated with extensive training in Early Childhood Development, ensured that their parents’ legacy would live on through the students that attend the school. From infants to preschool to kindergarten, J. B. Adams School meets all of the state licensing guidelines and is a Three Star Rising Star Center.
“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it”
