Jahn is a unique learning community that values and demonstrates respect for the individual and the educational experience at every level. A diverse student body, a progressive and expert faculty, caring and supportive parents, supportive benefactors, and community partners work together to create a place that showcases what a neighborhood school can be.
Jahn is home to challenging and rigorous programs that yield great results. We use a student-centered approach to teaching and learning. Hands-on instruction, cooperative learning, gradual release of responsibility, inquiry, and inclusive practices set us apart from other educational institutions.
