At Jordan Elementary, we pride ourselves on the high quality teaching and learning environment we offer to all students through differentiated instruction. Children have the opportunity to reach their highest potential as a learner. As an additional option for students performing at the highest levels, JES offers the STARS enrichment program. This program helps students thrive by offering challenging and supportive educational experiences and services beyond the typical classroom setting. Together these programs and services nurture the academic and social needs of high potential and creative children.
