Curriculum & Instruction

Jamestown School Department is committed to providing a rigorous, standards based curriculum with a balanced literacy program, real-world mathematics, hands-on science and civics education preparing students for 21st century learning. Our schools have adopted computer science, coding and science, technology, engineering, arts & mathematics (S.T.E.A.M) based opportunities as key components of the curriculum. Currently both schools in the district have a fully furnished makerspace lab with 3-d printers, green screens and Edison robots. The teachers in the schools have embraced the makerspace lab as another place where STEAM based lessons and design thinking come to life. In addition to these opportunities, our school community rejuvenated our greenhouse in 2017. The greenhouse is a separate structure located behind the Melrose Elementary School which can be used by all teachers and students on our 21-acre campus.The Jamestown School Department focuses on interdisciplinary, project-based learning centered on science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.
