We do this by working on achieving three main goals: becoming a model IB school, becoming a model reader’s and writer’s workshop school, and becoming a model school for innovation in the use of technology in the classroom. We can’t wait to see what is in store for us at JBE in 2016-2017!

Strength. Hope. Love. That’s Spartanburg.

Strength. Hope. Love. That’s Spartanburg.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr wrote, “Love is the most durable power in the world…Love is creative and redemptive. Love builds up and unites.” Every year our community comes together to honor and reflect on the words and purpose of Dr. King’s life during the City of Spartanburg’s Unity Week Celebration. This year’s celebration featured free events - a community walk, a day of service, and an evening unity celebration. District 7 was proud to support Unity Week.
Superintendent Russell Booker delivered greetings at the Mayor’s Unity Breakfast and McCracken student Corrine Bowden’s artwork was emblazoned on event t-shirts and banners telling the story of the powerful transforming forces of hope and love. MORE

Each year at Jesse Boyd our students work very hard to achieve more than is expected of them. They do this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a JBE student is someone who does more than is expected. 91% of JBE students earned their racing status last year. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become GOLD MEDAL Olympians. Why is our theme the Olympics? Of course this year we are having the Summer Olympics, but more importantly Olympic athletes show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day:
Olympians also show great commitment to their goal. They practice every day and get better and better as they #goforgold. Olympians also understand that sometimes you have to go slow to go fast and our students will learn all about that while they go through the curriculum. The other component of being an gold medal winner is team work. For example an Olympian can’t earn gold without the coach, teammates, sponsors, fans, and family supporting his/her efforts. Our students will learn to use their communication skills and learn to collaborate along the way. We are super excited about watching our students become Olympians as they #GOFORGOLD.
