We offer affordable, hands-on, integrated learning inspired by one of the world's top educational systems in Finland.
As JET enters its second year, we will continue to focus on treating the whole child while incorporating a laid-back and family atmosphere. We will challenge your child while making them feel safe and included.
In-person classes will be held from 8 am to 3 pm Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Work will be sent home with the student on Tuesday and Thursday for your Wednesday and Friday work-at-home days.
We understand not all kids learn at the same pace and each student will have their own journey. We will work hard to meet your child where they are and help guide them to the next step. We empower students to make choices that will benefit them in the future and lead them on a path to success. At JET Education Center children are taught and encouraged to work as a team,supporting each other rather than competing with one another. "The only time you should be looking down on a person is when you are helping them get up" Jesse Jackson. Each child is different and needs something different. Our small classes and multi-year learning groups give us time to get to know the student and learn what motivates them. JET Education Center teachers build an individualized grading scale and goal system for each student, allowing every student the ability to grow and succeed.
Imagine how well a teacher gets to know the students if he/she has them 7 hours a day for four years! We know when they are truly struggling, or if they just need a loving push. We form relationships with each of the students. The child knows what to expect and feels safe coming back the next year.
Recognizing there are three major learning styles, auditory, visual, and kinesthetic we utilize a wide variety of teaching styles. In the past, students have written papers, built dioramas, planted a garden, participated in a science fair, designed and constructed a board game including 3D printing game pieces, authored comic books, added art to umbrellas, and so much more. JET Education Center is not only a place of learning but also a place for students to feel safe, which may be the most important part of the entire program. We at JET, choose to keep our program small in order to foster strong bonds and a family atmosphere. Bottom line-- WE CARE. Give us a call and schedule a visit sometime.
We can't wait to meet you. .
