Thank you for visiting our school’s website. As a member of the JBE family, we hope you will also visit our Jesse Boyd Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Youtube channel. We are an active school striving to educate young people to become lifelong learners and leaders. We do this by working on achieving three main goals: becoming a model IB school, implementing reader’s and writer’s workshop in all classrooms, and becoming a model school for innovation in the use of technology in the classroom.
Our staff works diligently to maintain high educational standards by providing a rigorous and challenging curriculum. We strive to guide our students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. Along the way we have a lot of fun by creating a children’s first philosophy and celebrating the success of children.

RACING

RACING
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 monster status last year. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become DRIVERS. Why is our theme racing? Racers show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day: Curiosity Principled Risk-takers Caring Communicators Enthusiasm Creativity Integrity Cooperation Confidence Inquirers Thinkers Appreciation Reflection Racers also show great commitment to their goal. They practice every day and get better and better until they #finishtherace. Racers 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 racing is team work. For example in NASCAR, a driver can’t do it without the crew chief, pit crew, sponsors, fans, and teammates. 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 drivers when they #finishtherace
