JO’S Learning Academy K4-2nd Grade
JO’S Learning Academy (JLA) is a K4-2nd grade elementary school conveniently located on the North side of Milwaukee, WI. It’s nestled on the border of the Washington Heights neighborhood along North Avenue. Our complex is unique as it provides child care services for infants, toddlers and school age children in one beautiful location. Before and after care services are provided to families Monday through Friday and summer camp is offered annually. Our program focuses on the whole child starting at 6 weeks through 8 years old. Our future includes grade level expansion over the next few years.
The JLA daily program puts scholars at the forefront as we focus on their basic needs. These include social, emotional, physical, health and academic learning opportunities. At JLA, we meet children where they are and work with them and their families to scaffold learning experiences that help them reach their highest potential. Scholars are taught in small class sizes with enrollment set at no more than 20 per classroom.
JLA staff take time to get to know each child and family as we use culturally responsive teaching strategies to meet their needs. Our highly qualified teachers plan lessons to personalize learning for each child. Teachers ensure scholars have the skills to progress towards meeting common core state standards. Our curriculum ensures each scholar learns all academic content in a balanced approach. Each student-centered classroom is equipped with developmentally appropriate materials and equipment. Technology is integrated into the daily curriculum through the use of chrome books, Smart boards, and iPads. Developmentally appropriate assessments are given to accurately measure the growth of scholars to help them meet their grade level expectations.
We pride ourselves on being a family oriented school where scholars learn, grow and develop with us each year. Our passion and care for our scholars shows as we provide nurturing experiences to help them become independent leaders of tomorrow.
