Principal’s Message

Welcome to our school!
I am so pleased to welcome our new students as well as our returning students. We have made many recent improvements to our campus and we continue to expand our extra-curricular programs to ensure that all students may make the most of their time and explore a broad variety of interests. We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education.

Empowering Creative Thinkers

Our students are the center and soul of our school. At Jahn, we strive to empower them to be lifelong learners and use the arts as communication, creative personal realization, connectors of culture and history, a means to wellbeing, and community engagement.
