What to Expect


Regular attendance is required as each lesson builds on the one prior. If a student misses 3 classes, they will be dropped from the roll.

Class Make-ups

You may make-up at any location that has your program. Refer to your class’ schedule to locate classes for a make-up. Please note that make-up classes are a courtesy. When a large number of students are absent from their regular class, it not only makes an impact on that class, it makes an impact on the make-up class. For that reason, large numbers of students may not be able to make-up together. We do our best to accommodate. For illness or emergencies, call (650) 340-9860. Students are encouraged to schedule a make-up class (see class schedule and locations). Make-ups are offered as a courtesy, but sometimes can’t be accommodated.

When To Arrive

We ask that students arrive 10 minutes early for instruction and sign-in. If you need to bring a student earlier or will be late to pick up, please call (650) 340-9860 or email us at least 24 hours prior to class.


Please notify us of any medical or learning conditions.


ADHD presents challenges in nearly every facet of life. For a child with ADHD, feeling like they belong can be very difficult. JMC has worked well for a number of ADHD students, as they learn many of the social skills they need to practice, such as introducing themselves, conversing with others, approaching a buffet table, tying neckties, and eating a formal dinner. These tools give them the self-respect and confidence to accomplish whatever they set their minds to in life.
