About Us

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.
