Welcome to JGI where
success is truly a journey, not a destination. JGI is
comprised of a student body of approximately 460 third, fourth
and fifth grade students. JGI has an incredibly high
standard of academic achievement. Our school's Letter
ranks among the top in the district and state each year.
Our school offers a variety of programs
such as physical education, music, art instruction in individual
classrooms, Spanish, Accelerated Reader, Math Facts in a Flash,
Math Club, Student Council, individual and
classroom guidance, computer lab, and a variety of
special grade level activities to assist in the development of
life long learners.
JGI believes in the technology future of our
students with each classroom housing surround sound, LCD
projectors and SmartBoards. Recently, we acquired 2
portable labs of NEO2s and 2 C.O.W. (computers on wheels). JGI is also connected with PowerSchool which provides parents with online access to student
grades, attendance information, lunch balances, etc.
Most of all JGI is comprised of an educational
family of teachers and support staff who have a deep commitment
to the academic, social and emotional success of each child.
This is accomplished in part by each classroom philosophy
centered around the 17 Practices of Great Expectations.
JGI was recognized as a G.E. Model School. Mrs. Giles, our assistant principal, and I bring to JGI a
combined 45 years of educational experience. It is an
honor to lead JGI which is a school built upon a dynamic
staff, incredible students and a dedicated, supportive and
involved parent population. JGI is truly a place
where..."Learning is our business, and business is good."
Enjoying the Journey,
