We Believe…

Every student is important and possesses the potential to achieve greatness. We must educate our students in an equitable and positive learning environment that promotes a student-centered approach to teaching and learning. We further believe students will reach their highest level of achievement when mutually respectful and positive relationships are fostered and nourished among students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration.

Jersey Shore Area School District Performance Profile

Beginning Friday, October 4, the Pennsylvania Department of Education will make available the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile.  The profile provides academic performance information for public schools in the state.  The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:
  1. to inform the public of school performance
  2. to provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system
  3. to allow the public to compare schools across the state
  4. to give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and their needs
