The learning environment at JPS provides a highly supportive and structured setting, consistency, and genuine caring for each individual. We believe that every child can have a meaningful and successful educational experience. To accomplish this we focus on the intellectual, social, emotional, and creative domains with each and every student. As a member of the JPS community students will explore and develop creative interests within an integrated curriculum and learn new skills to succeed to the best of their ability.
