We have successfully launched our new school year in our new location. We welcome back our returning staff and teachers for another wonderful school year at Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In addition to a new building and new classrooms, our educational staff has added new teachers and new faces to our small school community.
We are proud to have a highly qualified faculty to serve the academic needs of our students and to help provide a safe and caring environment for each individual who is part of our school community. Our curriculum is data driven and focuses on student achievement. We have high expectations for each student. We expect our students to be on time, to attend school regularly, put an effort in each classroom, and respect the rights of each individual in our school community.
What We Do
Our mission is, in partnership with students, parents and staff to educate and encourage all students to reach their full potential and become successful contributor to society. In additional to excellent academics, our students speak two to three languages and are fully prepared for global multilingual world.
We look forward to continuing work on the priorities established the previous years in French, Math, Science, Language Arts, History, Geography and Latin. The exposure to Spanish has increased in some classes, while others have seen an increase in weekly Arabic and/or French sessions. We are especially pleased to have a Physics and Chemistry lab and a computer lab for the spring semester. Violin is now scheduled for an hour long session for level based groups on Wednesdays and Mondays.
Exceptional Programs Available
We are proud and excited to offer continuing and improving programs to provide the best educational experience for your child. Our improved use and integration of technology for students, arts and music are just a few examples of our recent successes. We will continue and deepen our work around making social justice a reality, keeping our promises to students and families, and ensuring high achieving joyful learning for all. Our heartfelt thanks to the dedicated parents who have helped us get ready for the new school year over the summer 2012. We also thank, in advance, the parents who have volunteered for small projects for improving our school and playground, and we are looking forward to another exciting school year at Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
