The lottery determines, at random, who is accepted to the school and who is placed on the waiting list. Those on the waiting list will be contacted once an opening occurs. If no response is made then the school will move on to the next person on the list. The list of applicants is refreshed every year, re-using the lottery method. Applications for the 2014-2015 school year are now being accepted at the Learning Community Charter School now up till Friday January 3rd at 3pm.

While looking at the curriculum and classes offered at the Learning Community Charter School I was sort of taken a back when I saw the extensive list. Many of the things offered are for sure not mandatory to be provided, which is great to see. It gives me the feeling that this school truly does care to give its students an experience that they will forever appreciate. Yes, the school of course offers English Language arts, math, science, physical education and social studies. But the courses that put an extra smile on my face were visual arts, wingspan arts (which is a non-profit program that all students from 5th grade to 8th grade engage in for an hour once a week exposing them to performing, visual, media and literary arts), hip hop elements, play at poetry, digital photography and graphic design (designs the yearbook), Afro- Caribbean drumming and step it up (where students learn to step; make rhythmic patterns using their hands and feet). There are so many options here for each child that wherever they choose to go they should learn, grow and most importantly experience something new to help them feel more comfortable or “at home” in their school.

Learning Community Charter SchooYou may be overwhelmed with all of the course options I just threw at you but be prepared for one more thing; the THINK TANK after school program at the learning community charter school. The think tank after school program is offered daily from 3:15-6 pm and from 12:20-6 pm on most half days. It is set in place for both activities and homework help. There are three sessions of this program each year and they do require a fee. If you or your child is interested in attending the after school program please contact the school for more information on how the payment works. They are willing to work with families who may not be able to afford the entire payment. No child left behind right? Also, students are allowed to do a one day drop in at the after school program but also at a charge; usually $18 but again, contact the school if this does not work for you and see what they can do. It never hurts to take the chance especially with a school that is willing to help.

The Learning Community Charter School sounding good for you so far? Don’t forget the applications are due by January 3rd! Also, remember you can drop into any of the upcoming tours on Monday December 16th and Friday January 3rd. Hope it is the school for you! Happy School Searching!

The Golden Door Charter SchoolNext thing you should know about Golden Door Charter School is their uniform policy. At Golden Door they are very strict with uniforms. Each child is to come to school in their uniform daily. This means your child shall attend school in their proper uniform (varies from class grades) from head to toe. If your child is out of uniform, the school will contact you so that you can bring in the proper uniform for your child.

Food time! At Golden Door they provide breakfast and lunch for each child. Some may be eligible for free or reduced fare meals depending on the income eligibility guidelines provided on the Federal income chart. If you do not think you will qualify I would like to tell you the pricing for each meal. For a student that has to pay the full fare, breakfast will cost $1.35 and lunch will cost $2.50 daily. For a reduced fare student, breakfast will cost $.30 and lunch will cost $.40 daily. Students are not required to bring their lunch money with them. The school has a FSS PositiveID system in place; which is a system where your child’s finger will be recognized to uncover their account that you the parent sets up in the way of your choosing. This way, your child will be the only one who has access to their own meals, which in my opinion is great to hear.

Public Schools In Jersey City – Student to Teacher ratios in the classroom

Public Schools In Jersey City

As a parent you all know what is best for your child. Every child is different, each demanding a different type of care or attention. So why not go that extra length in finding a school that matches those very needs? Well, usually it becomes an effort to try and obtain such information from both the public and private schools. You just can never be too sure. Eventually it becomes a search battle much like when we try to find the best priced flight ticket.

 Public Schools In Jersey City

 

As a college student I know how important the teacher to student ratio can be. It can make the difference between scoring higher in test and just as important in the level of comfort your child will have in the classroom. It is most common to prefer a class with the smallest number of children so that each child can get that individual attention that they each deserve. I truly agree! It is every mother’s desire for their child to get all the attention they can get from the teacher. We want to make sure that each child can leave the classroom feeling confident that each day they learned something new without any confusion. However, as an education major I urge you not to forget about the positives a class with a good amount of students can do for your child. I always think it is a great benefit to be able to be in a room full of many different minds so that we could each learn from one another.

 Public Schools In Jersey City

 

During the 2010-2011 school year the Jersey City Public School district had a student enrollment of 34,505. The number of classroom teachers employed at this same time in Jersey City was 2,665. This leaves us with an average ratio of about 12 to 13 students per classroom. This was the average given for each of the public schools. When the polls were done over for the current year that passed it was found that the student to teacher ratio has actually lowered to an average or 9 students to a teacher. However, this is simply an average of the overall schools. To hit closer to home, the following list will give the average ratio for each individual public school.

 

 Alexander D. Sullivan No. 30 Elementary School

Grades PK-5                                                     student/teacher

Alfred E. Zampella No. 27 Elementary School

Grades K-8                                                       11 student/teacher
