MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at John Story Jenks Academy for the Arts and Sciences. This year marks a very special anniversary as we celebrate 100 years of educating our students at Jenks which was established in 1923. We will work to recognize all that has been accomplished over the past 100 years and the innovation that sustains us into our future.
It is an honor to serve the hundreds of students bestowed in our care as we work in partnership with their families and the community.
Here at Jenks, we are committed to offering supportive environments for our members to flourish! We embody the core values of our mission and vision as caring, responsible, and reflective practitioners. Our staff continuously engages in professional learning communities to intellectually prepare rigorous academic practices while prioritizing equity and the well-being of our children. Together, we will ensure that our students here at Jenks receive the love, guidance, and support they need to prosper and succeed.
Jenks School thrives “beyond the walls of the school” alongside the strong partnerships that support us. We are thankful for the commitment of our Home and School Association, Friends of Jenks and the Chestnut Hill community organizations that help our school grow. We do this work for our students, united together, to make our tomorrow even better than today! Join us in our mission to support our neighborhood school in Chestnut Hill. If you haven’t already done so, we invite all families to become members of our Home and School Association and Friends of Jenks. Join us!
Yours in Partnership,
