Learning Services

Our Core Instructional Approach for Grades K-12 provides a solid foundation for students, equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate an ever-changing world. The JCS comprehensive curriculum, innovative teaching methods, and commitment to student success set us apart. Recognizing the diverse learning needs of students, our Core Instruction incorporates differentiated teaching strategies. This ensures that each learner receives personalized support to reach their full potential.

This is the center of support at our first "tier," but we also provide additional tailored options beyond the core to further enhance the strength of our classroom instruction.

OUR TEAM

The Learning Services Team includes 8 Learning Specialists, a Testing coordinator, two gifted teachers, and our Director of Learning Services. This team works directly with students, consults with staff and parents, and collaborates with developmental therapists and private providers for assessment, eligibility, and intervention needs. The staff supports evidence-based core instruction, supplemental intervention, and intensive intervention.
