My name is Julie Baker and I'm the principal of JPS Montessori school. I am a graduate of Jackson High School, and have been a proud member of the JPS family for over 20 years as both a teacher and administrator. On behalf of my staff, I’d like to welcome you to JPS Montessori School. We are located in JPS Montessori Center, a beautifully renovated building near Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital.. JPS Montessori School is unlike any other program in Jackson. We offer Montessori instruction, tuition free, for students in kindergarten through grade four. Our teachers have developed beautiful learning environments with students in mind, complete with a full assortment of Montessori materials and desks and chairs made from natural wood. During daily work sessions, students explore and learn within these environments at their own pace while teachers act as guides, providing instruction to students that meets their individual needs;achieving academic excellence and a lifelong love of learning. Our students gain confidence, self-direction, and focus as they participate in work sessions. They also learn social skills as they learn from and with one another. We believe that the collaborative nature of Montessori learning teaches our students early the soft skills they will need to be successful in college and the workforce. Students receive daily instruction in Spanish from a teacher who utilizes Montessori methods while incorporating music, movement, and conversation. We are fortunate to share our program building with the Felician Children’s Center. This partnership provides numerous opportunities for our families, including childcare for infants and toddlers, as well preschool for 3 and 4-year-olds, and after school care.
The Jackson School Board has picked its officers for the coming year.
Jackson Public Schools is switching the leaders of Dibble and Frost elementary schools
Thanks to one Michigan woman's invention and some help from Consumers Energy, elementary school students across Jackson County won't know that torture anymore.
A smaller enrollment decline than expected and an increase in state funding for at-risk students helped erase about a $1 million deficit from Jackson Public Schools' 2017-18 budget.
As part of an $86.7 million bond proposal, Jackson's Frost and Cascades elementary schools would be demolished and a new elementary school built in their place.
