Jack Jouett Middle School offers its uniquely diverse student body a route to success in life through a range of opportunities that seek to engage every child in the learning community.

School Highlights

Jouett remains a certified National Demonstration School for the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program. As a Demonstration School, Jouett consistently has shown high levels of schoolwide implementation of WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) strategies with quality and fidelity. Jouett serves as a model to other schools in the nation of successful, impactful implementation of WICOR strategies.

A core philosophy behind AVID is the incorporation of the high-quality teaching and learning methodologies present in the implementation of WICOR strategies. Most recently, this was exemplified by Jouett’s focus on Visible Learning for Literacy, through which classroom teachers develop their ability to choose the right approach to instruction at the right time and advance their understanding of when students are ready to transition from surface learning to deep learning. All teachers are learning these strategies for implementation now and into the future.

Community building is one of the most highly regarded elements of Jouett’s overall program. This is demonstrated by informational outreach programs designed for the parents of ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) students and AVID students as a means to help them develop the skills they need to advocate for their children. It also can be seen daily in student meetings designed to build positive relationships and ensure every student has a sense of belonging and purpose.

A final example of the school’s dedication to this principle is the Momentum program. Through community partnerships Jouett has developed a program that teaches students to value all people highly and equally and develops a personal and communal responsibility for stopping violence and aggression and standing up for victims of harassment.
