Overview

Welcome!

We are Jepson, where all ages come together to learn and value differences!

The main unique philosophy and approach you will find at our school is multi-age classrooms where students learn together in mixed-age groupings. Since students here have the opportunity to stay with their teachers longer than in traditional academic settings for two years in preK 3-4, Kindergarten-grade 1, Grades 2-3, and grades 4-5 groupings, teachers have more time to really get to know each child and monitor their development and mastery of skills. In our flexible groups children get to learn at their own pace and according to their abilities while receiving a rigorous and academically challenging education that prepares them for the real world.

 

How to Know Jepson is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child would thrive in a nontraditional multi-age classroom with peers from a variety of cultures and urban/suburban communities.

○ Your child works well with students of different age groups in a cooperative and collaborative environment.

○ You want a learning environment for your child that is both differentiated and experiential.
