M. Agnes Jones Elementary School provides a learning environment that facilitates standards-based instruction connected to the world outside the classroom. We provide personalized educational experiences that strengthen the skills, talents, and self-esteem of each individual student. Daily, we demonstrate and reinforce the value and benefit of hard work and foster the belief that each child is capable of being a productive citizen. We recognize that students' needs vary according to background, ability, motivation, and values and that the emotional and physical environment should be conducive to learning. We operate from the premise that learning is a constant process and individuals learn from each of their experiences. We recognize that the school is not the sole influence in our students' education. We believe that education is the combined responsibility of the school, home and community.
