"Janney prides itself as being a community of learners that promotes respect and responsibility. Janney strives to cultivate in its community the skills, values, and confidence to support a lifetime of learning, leadership, and service. The school encourages children to be joyful, active learners who are confident and ethical citizens of the school community and can apply this to the larger global community. Students will be able to discover and appreciate their own voice, to listen to others, to express themselves verbally and in writing, to think critically, to solve problems in creative ways, to work cooperatively with others and to use technology to promote understanding and communication. While at Janney, students will deepen their knowledge in language arts, history and geography, math, science and fine arts through a rich, coherent curriculum that reflects the diversity of the world in which we live and takes full advantage of the resources in the DC area.
