It is our endeavor to create an educational climate in which students experience both success and challenge. We believe that co-curricular activities are integral to the educational program. They provide opportunities for all students to support and extend their academic learning. Co-curricular activities should support the goals of teaching students to be responsible and fulfilled human beings providing them with opportunities to develop citizenship, sportsmanship, critical thinking, social and physical skills.
We believe the co-curricular program should provide a variety of experiences that allow all students to explore their options and abilities. Success in these activities can result in increased self-respect, self-esteem and self-confidence. We believe that the characteristics of teamwork, cooperation, time management, organization and pride in achievement that can be developed in co-curricular activities can then be transferred to the student’s academic learning.
Jenkintown MS/HS has always been a central part of the community and our athletics programs remain a focal point for school spirit.
