Jerabek Elementary is a neighborhood school located in the eastern section of San Diego's Scripps Ranch neighborhood. We serve some 650 students from transitional kindergarten through grade 5, plus a preschool program.
Our mission is to educate children in order to enable them to learn, grow and compete in an ever global economy. We value instilling a love for learning and character development in an environment of high expectations while engaged in the development of 21st century learning skills through a comprehensive education on their path to college and career readiness. We believe that students should have a balanced school experience that includes traditional core subjects but also incorporates the arts, music, science, computer literacy, and technology to enhance the everyday learning in the classroom.
Our vision is to develop a nurturing and inclusive community that develops the whole child. We strive for our children to become confident, motivated, curious and happy learners who experience academic growth and success. Our goal is to develop critical thinkers with twenty-first-century skills who possess leadership qualities and are effective communicators. We seek to create responsible citizens who value diversity. The school community is working together to develop a plan for how best to achieve our vision. We are immersed in Common Core State Standards and instruction, our teachers and students will be developing and applying skills such as critical thinking, communication, creativity, and collaboration into all aspects of the teaching and learning process.
The body of student learning experiences include completing work, projects and assessments that demonstrate their depth and breadth of knowledge, understanding of important information, representing their learning computationally, conceptually, linguistically and non-linguistically, and a student’s ability to synthesize and evaluate concepts in all areas of the Common Core State Standards.
