Mission and vision

Mission Statement

  • Engaging our students in a Spanish language program that promotes bicultural and biliterate learning
  • Implementing a hands-on, meaningful, research-based curriculum that encourages literacy development, the use of technology, critical thinking, and problem solving skills
  • Sustaining a positive school climate and nurturing environment that fosters risk taking independent learners who demonstrate social consciousness and compassion for human kind
  • Providing the resources and structure for our students as they engage in developmentally appropriate and meaningful activities
  • Continuing professional development that supports the latest research in developmentally appropriate and meaningful activities
  • Scaffolding the use of differentiated instruction which fosters high expectations

Our Vision

Jahn World Language School envisions a school climate that will support our students as they journey through a multilingual environment and multicultural world. They will exhibit high self-esteem, social consciousness about cultural diversity, strong character, and critical thinking skills that will allow them to make meaningful contributions to a global society. Our students will continuously demonstrate high expectations throughout high school, their postsecondary education and their future.

Teacher of the month

It has been a great privilege working at Jahn World Language School this year. It has been a pleasure working with our talented and motivated students, as well as our excellent, creative, and supportive staff and administration. While our music program is still developing, I am very proud of what our students have achieved so far. With the help of their teachers, they put on a fantastic Holiday Season Assembly and a terrific Black History assembly. I am amazed at the great progress that our band and choir students have made singing, and learning guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums.

Students of the Month

Every month teachers select a student who has exhibited good behavior, good work habits, and good citizenship to be the positive action students of the month. We celebrate with an ice cream party and students’ pictures are placed on our positive action bulletin board for all to see.
