Jamestown Elementary School strives to educate children in an optimal learning environment, preparing them for success in a global society. Teachers implement a rich, rigorous, and differentiated curriculum. The use of mobile technologies supports innovative educational practices that encourage students to become creative thinkers, problems solvers, and effective communicators. Collaborating in Professional Learning Communities (PLC), teachers implement the Responsive Classroom Approach to address students’ social and emotional needs as they provide a demanding academic program differentiating instruction by addressing students’ multiple intelligences, diverse learning styles, and the implementation of Arlington’s Tiered System of Support.
Spanish is an important part of the instructional program focusing on authentic communication, the integration of math and science concepts, as well as the enhancement of cultural awareness. Outdoor education is a key component of inquiry-based science lessons and essential to our challenge-based learning initiatives. Jamestown teachers empower students to be responsible for their own learning.
