The community of Mary W. Jackson STEAM Multilingual Magnet Elementary has a shared stake in the educational philosophy of the school. We believe that:

  • All children can discover and develop their passion for learning.
  • Knowledge and academic success instill self-motivation in our students.
  • A rigorous, meaning-centered, thinking curriculum based on significant content and 21st century skills is the centerpiece of instruction.
    • An academic program that seamlessly integrates the STEAM disciplines will prepare students for a highly technological future.
    • Early second language acquisition leads to biliterate and bi-cognitive students with a multi-cultural understanding that helps them develop a global perspective.
  • The involvement of parents and community members is integral to the success of our students.
