Looking for a school whose goal it is to ensure the cognitive development of students? A school with the drive and the staff that is dedicated to the development of themselves in order to properly educate each child in attending? Well then, it is time to talk about Jersey City Community Charter School!
At Jersey City Community Charter School they make it their business to provide an innovative learning experience for the students. They believe on promoting “self-directed, life learning skills and facilitate the students ability to make responsible decisions” as stated on their website. They are well equipped to deliver such a promise by Academic and non-academic goals that the school has in place. These goals are easily accessible in just a click away (http://jcccsonline.org/goals-objectives/). Take a good look at what these goals are and how they are each divided. If you’re one for clear and concise schedules and objectives then this page in particular should spark your interest, so give it a try!
At Jersey City Community Charter School they believe firmly in eliminating any sort of outside distraction in the school environment. Because of this, they have a very strict policy concerning toys and electronics. The Jersey City Community Charter School is very adamant about keeping any toys and electronic games out of the school environment and so they have a confiscating rule towards it. If any child brings any of these items to the school they will be confiscated and will not be returned. If this is something that concerns you, you may want to talk to administration. If not, then perhaps like many parents this will just make you happy to hear that the Jersey City Community Charter School is concentrating on keeping your child focused on the important task at hand.
What about food you ask? You guessed it, lunch and breakfast are provided by the school for the children. The lunch application forms get distributed on the first day of school to be sent home with the child and to be filled out as soon as possible. Children who are not going to be eating the school lunch are still required to submit a lunch application form just so that they are on file. Once you submit the lunch application form you will be notified as to how much, if at all, the lunch will be costing you. So be sure to keep an eye out for that form and again fill it out as soon as possible.
Lastly, if the idea of no electronic entertainment might have scared you a little bit, I’m here to tell you that what has been taken away, is up for with the different classes and activities offered by Jersey City Community Charter School. The school offers up many interesting classes such as classes with scientists, teachers, animators, artists and programmers who are passionate about what they do. In classes such as Sponge Lab where the students are introduced to technology and interactive media, or classes like OpenClass, where teachers use a learning environment to help bring social learning and interactive experiences as a learning mechanism. Best of all these classes are open to everyone and free of charge. The school also hosts events throughout the year to get everyone together such as movie nights. How great is that!
Now if anything here has sparked your interests I strongly encourage you to give the school a call and see if you can plan a tour date for yourself and even your little one. I’m sure it’ll be an easy bit of information to get a hold of, being how impressed the Jersey City Community Charter School has left me by the skills they possess in clear and concise organization. And as always, Happy School hunting Everyone!
