Benjamin Jepson Multi-Age Interdistrict Magnet

Benjamin Jepson: Where Blue Jays SOAR to success.
Benjamin Jepson offers classrooms where students learn and grow together across more than one grade level. Students will often have the same teacher for 2 consecutive years in PreK 3 and 4, 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, and 5th and 6th grade to help build relationships. Additionally, students in 7th and 8th grade loop with their teachers. Our program provides the teachers with more time to get to know each child, monitor their development and mastery of skills, and provide more opportunities for support. Multi-age classroom models honor the whole-child and allow for greater flexibility and differentiation in meeting children’s needs. In our flexible groups, children get to learn at their own pace according to their abilities, while receiving a rigorous and academically challenging education that prepares them for the real world.

How to know our school is right for your child:

  • Your child would thrive in a nontraditional, multi-age classroom with peers from a variety of cultures and communities. Students at Jepson learn Arabic as a foreign language.
  • Your child works well with students of different age groups in a cooperative and collaborative environment.

About Our Theme:

  • Benjamin Jepson offers classrooms where students work and learn together across more than one grade level. The sense of community that is formed by the staff and students creates mentors who take on leadership roles in the classroom and around the school. At Jepson, we become one big family.
