We like to say that we're a little school with a big heart!
We think of ourselves more as a family, than an institution. We take care of one other. Families help other families with childcare, teachers stay late to help struggling students, and we all participate in PTO and school fundraisers to continually make Jamestown a better place for kids!
How Is Our School Unique?
Walk through the doors of Jamestown Elementary school and you instantly know it's a special place. Tucked up onto the mountainside of an old mining town, the halls of this school resonate with laughter from the many years of love and learning exchanged here. It’s a place where teachers have given of themselves freely, teaching their students through gentle encouragement and solid example.
The result is that their students are ignited with the flames of wonder, curiosity, and a desire to make the world a better place. Whether they are reading a book in the library, bent over a desk deep in thought, eating lunch with their friends, playing group games in the gym or soaking up fresh mountain air on the playground, Jamestown Elementary kids share in the experience of being nurtured with love, secure in the knowledge that someone they know and respect believes in them and their future.
