Each program at JCS is unique, but they all share a common connection to PERSONALIZED learning. I love that the teachers at my daughters' school create all the curriculum themselves, and personalize it for each child in their classroom. Most of them have masters' degrees, many from top-notch universities, and when I listen to the talk about their passion for learning, their passion for approaching education of the whole child - it gives me goosebumps! These are passionate teachers who invested in themselves to become great professionals at what they love.
The school talks about creating passionate lifelong learners - I have to say, the teachers I have met all represent that, every day. I know that most teachers in most schools work hard for their kids, but when I see the great curriculum that my daughters' teachers are creating, with very little use of boring text books, and the incredible projects my daughters work on - I'm just floored. The proof is in how much my daughters look forward to being at school, and how easy it is for me to home school them on Fridays with the thorough packets the teachers send home. If I'm ever stuck or stumped, both of my daughter's teachers, as well as the center's leader, are just an e-mail away. They support me 100%, even when I'm out of my element! I wish every kid in California could have this, but I'm so glad I found JCS for my kids!
