From the Principal

{title}
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.

Vision, Values, and Viking Pride

Vision, Values, and Viking Pride
Donning a pair of blue and gold sunglasses, District Seven Superintendent, Dr. Russell Booker told a packed auditorium at the Chapman Cultural Center on April 17th that “the future for the district is so bright, we need to wear shades.”
During his 4th annual State of the District address to the community, Booker provided a summary of Spartanburg Seven’s progress of the past five years and pointed to new opportunities on the horizon. Citing the district’s rating of “Excellent” on the 2014 SC Report Card, the tremendous success of 7Ignites and being one of only a few districts in the state to be fully digital, Booker applauded D7’s entrepreneurial and innovative spirit and challenged the community to continue to embrace programs and initiatives worthy of a 21st century education.

MONSTERS

MONSTERS
Jesse Boyd students worked hard last year to earn their hero status. They did this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a hero is someone who does more than is expected. 87% of JBE students earned their hero status. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become MONSTERS. Why monsters? Monsters 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 We can’t wait to see what our students are going to accomplish with the theme this year.
