The School District of Jenkintown is located in suburban Montgomery County, three miles north of Philadelphia. The population of the .58 square mile community is approximately 4,500.
Our district houses two schools, Jenkintown Elementary School and Jenkintown MIddle/High School with an enrollment of over 600 students in grades K-12.
The School District of Jenkintown strives to provide all children with an education appropriate to their needs, interests, and abilities. Characteristics of the Jenkintown program are close relationships between students and staff, and many opportunities for student participation.
In an effort to educate the whole person, the curricular and co-curricular activities focus on computation and communication skills, the use of modern technology, democratic values, and the foundations to create not only independent and critical thinkers, but also cooperative members of a team; and the formation of responsible citizenship in a changing society.
Essential to the achievement of these goals are structures to ensure a highly competent administration, a well trained and caring faculty and staff, and responsible school board members. Of equal importance are the students, their supportive parents, and an informed community.
It is our endeavor to create an educational climate in which students experience both success and challenge. We hope to instill the realization that learning is integral to growth and extend beyond the scope of the school district’s program.
The School District of Jenkintown is committed to assuring equal opportunity in educational programs and in employment practices regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin or handicap, in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
