Students at Benjamin Jepson Multi-Age School learn together in mixed age groupings. For example, kindergarten and first grade students are combined in the same classroom. Students benefit from staying with the same teacher for two years through 5th grade. Teachers have more time to monitor each child’s development and mastery of skills.
Jepson’s multi-age philosophy promotes the practice of teaching children of different ages and ability levels together, grouping students into flexible groups. These groupings allow children to learn at their own pace and according to their abilities – no matter what their age or grade level.
Students at Jepson take a rigorous course of study in language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, technology, music and art. Challenging and developmentally appropriate lessons promote high student achievement. Curricula related field trips are planned across all grade levels and content areas. These trips motivate students to apply their classroom knowledge to real world experiences. Students are expected to become hardworking, contributing members of their communities. In addition, community service projects are an integral part of our curriculum.
Students learn through cooperation at Jepson. Children gain skills and complete projects by working together in small groups within the classroom. This cooperative spirit carries over into the school’s physical education program where teamwork is emphasized over winning.

2012 Lottery Results Data
2012 Lottery Results Data
In an effort to help make families make informed decisions about choosing magnet and charter schools, for the first time NHPS is publishing last year’s lottery data for each magnet and charter school at the bottom of each page. Although the data changes year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available, how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood and how many applicants had siblings. Seats and applicants are specific to New Haven and suburban residents. Hopefully this added information, along with attending Open Houses, will give families the information necessary to choose schools that will fit the individual needs of their children.
