Lehman-Jackson Elementary School

Welcome to Lehman-Jackson Elementary School! In addition to our core subjects, our approximately 400 students enjoy art, music, technology, physical education, and innovative opportunities. We are also very proud to offer choral and band programs to our intermediate students. Lehman-Jackson is a school that offers best practices of instruction, places emphasis on values, and exhibits a sense of school pride. If you are thinking about enrolling your child at Lehman-Jackson, we are confident you will enjoy our school!

Our Core Values

At Lehman-Jackson Elementary School, we place emphasis on the following seven (7) core values:

  • Cooperation
  • Generosity
  • Helpfulness
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Academic Achievement

These seven values coincide directly to our “Be Your Best” program. We recognize and reward students each month who demonstrate these values throughout the school year.

Best Practices of Instruction

We strive to create a student-centered instructional environment which maximizes student engagement and provides opportunities for our students to become better learners.  We place emphasis on the following best practices of instruction:

  • Collaboration and Group Work
  • Real World Connections and Background Knowledge
  • Active Participation
  • Explore and Discover
  • Motivational and Meaningful Activities

For the 2017-18 school year, we will be placing emphasis on students collaborating with one another across grade-levels. Research shows this type of instruction creates a sense of pride among students and increases student achievement.

Our Student and Teacher Creeds

Beginning in the 2013-14 school year, we set the foundation for school pride when we began to focus on building esthetics. To date, we have made approximately 35 upgrades that students, teachers, and parents can be proud of when they walk into our school. Developing a student and teacher creed is an additional way to instill a sense of pride and honor for our school. We developed our student and teacher creeds to hold us more accountable for our daily actions and decisions while also helping us focus on the challenges that we face on a daily basis.
