At Jordan Elementary School we value standards-based instruction, where time and resources are dedicated to improving student achievement, and relationships are nurtured to create a safe and fun learning and working environment. JES focuses on the academic and social-emotional development of students by incorporating a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) model where safety, respect and responsibility are integrated into all areas of the school. We celebrate and acknowledge students demonstrating positive behavior and continuously look for ways to support students when challenges arise. We value building relationships with students and believe when students feel cared for and nurtured, high levels of learning occur.
Our highly qualified staff ensures the overall well being of your child and will create an environment conducive to all learning styles and abilities. We incorporate a rigorous curriculum aligned with Minnesota state standards to meet individual needs. Academic programming consists of our STARS (gifted and talented) program, RtI (Response to Intervention) Reading and Math, MN Reading Corp, and after school programs targeting students needing additional math and reading support. Staff members collaborate in professional learning communities to analyze student data on a regular basis and share best practices to guide instruction. Technology is integrated daily into the curriculum, where Smart Boards, iPads, Chromebooks, and the Internet are used to engage students and provide them with a 21st Century learning experience.
