About Us

Children Come FIRST.

We strive to help our students be

  • Confident and independent,
  • Creative,
  • Inquisitive,

To achieve this goal, the TJES staff will

  • Model, recognize, and reward the student characteristics above and the pillars of Character Counts,
  • Challenge students and selves with high expectations,
  • Allow time for student exploration of concepts,
  • Give students choices in the classroom to build their ownership of learning,
  • Make efforts to connect with and learn from colleagues, and
  • Develop supportive relationships with students, parents, and community

and learning will be

  • Purposeful,
  • Thought-provoking,
  • Differentiated (that is, challenging, developmentally appropriate, and in an appropriate amount),
  • Creative and hands-on, and
  • Aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning.
