About Morris Jeff Community School:
MJCS is open-access public charter school located in Mid-City that uses a whole-child approach to create an education experience that is a source of freedom and possibility for our 260 students in grades PK-3. Over the next five years the school will expand to serve more than 700 students in grades PK-8 and will move into a new permanent home in lower Mid-City at the Fisk-Howard campus in 2014.
The school was founded through a community process in which parents, educators, and other community leaders dreamed of a school that is excellent, is open to all types of children and families, and is as diverse as the community we serve. At MJCS students’ learning experiences are infused with daily exposure to art, music, foreign language and meaningful play.
