Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We, the students, staff, parents and friends of Jackson Street School share a vision
of our school as a secure, comfortable place where:
? Diverse learning styles are appreciated
? Academic achievements through inquiry and
critical thinking are encouraged
? Independent learning and confidence are
? Social responsibility and mutual respect are
Our mission is to give each child a solid foundation in education; build respect and
appreciation for oneself, each other, and for the diverse cultures in the school, the
community and the world; and promote active participation and involvement by
families, school personnel, and community members in all school activities."
