Institution Description

Jennings Community School (JCS) is known as an exemplary, progressive, urban, community-based school that serves a high percentage of at-risk youth and fosters achievement for responsible citizenship, productive work, lifelong learning, and creative, healthy lifetimes. The culture of JCS embraces trust, respect, caring, relationships, and student-driven learning.
The school environment is innovative and non-traditional with extensive experiential out-of-class learning, including annual educational trips. Students start from a place of personal interest then develop projects with individual guidance from advisors licensed in Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts and more. An advisor working with each student and their parent(s), guardian(s), or invested adult(s) creates a personal learning plan to advance each student. JCS teachers see themselves as “facilitators of learning” in helping students be responsible citizens, achieve fulfilling careers, become self-directed, lead healthy lives and become lifelong learners. With experiential learning, everyone is a learner and everyone is a teacher. JCS offers a work-based learning program helping students earn credits through job skill development.
