JVS Mission and Beliefs

[logo designed by Lena]


The mission of Jamaica Village School is to provide students with a safe and respectful environment, a quality education that reflects high academic standards, respects and nurtures individual talents, encourages cooperative involvement among family, peers, school, and community and allows our students to develop to their maximum potential as life-long learners and responsible members of the global as well as local community.

We believe…

  • All children can and want to learn and it is our responsibility to teach to each student’s learning style;

  • Everyone deserves a safe and respectful environment;

  • Knowing the families of the children we teach is as important as knowing the children as we believe active parental involvement is key to student learning;

  • High expectations for academic and social skills lead to lifelong learning; and

  • Student-focused professional development maximizes student learning.
