At Jesse Boyd we continually state that there is No Place We’d Rather Be than JBE. With a wonderful student body, a supportive community, and talented staff, it is a joy to call this school the place that has been part of my family for over 12 years. Jesse Boyd Elementary School makes it our mission to inspire and equip all to become lifelong learners and productive community members through a challenging and supportive environment which promotes academic excellence, confidence and creativity. After another successful school year and as our school theme encouraged, our students WON GOLD with remarkable achievements, contributions, and growth in both academics and character. We are thrilled in the 2017-2018 school year to watch our students LOVE WHERE THEY LEARN as they develop a love and appreciation for learning, our school, our community, and for giving back to others.
JBE continues to be fully authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years program (IB PYP) enabling our students to acquire a world class knowledge. The IB curriculum is structured in purposeful inquiry that engages students actively in their own learning. The rigorous teaching and learning that occur are built in a collaborative effort from our teachers using the SC standards and the IBPYP program outlines. The curriculum supports students’ efforts in obtaining a deep global knowledge in all content areas through transdisciplinary teaching that helps students construct meaning from the world around them by drawing on their prior knowledge, providing provocation through new experiences, and providing opportunities for reflection. Our students continue to excel academically.Read More
