Dear Jennings School District Friends and Families,
Welcome to the Jennings School District where we are committed to continuous improvement. The focus of our mission is to ensure that each student develops a passion for learning through challenging curricula. We are a community of learners committed to excellence in education.
Our motto for the 2016-2017 school year is: Students First. We believe that by engaging the community, we strengthen our schools, and by strengthening our schools, we empower our community to grow and change in a positive direction. We continue to update our web page, and post news on Facebook and Twitter in an effort to give the community greater access to district information that community members may find helpful. We encourage parents to visit their child’s school and volunteer. Please take time to explore our links to each school on our web page and explore our district calendar for key dates in which you can become involved.
The 2016-2017 school year will be an exciting school year. We invite our community members to partner with us as we work as a team in helping students prepare for the future. It is a privilege to serve the families of the Jennings School District. Thank you for your continued support. I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Jennings School District has a long and distinguished history, extending back over 125 years to 1871. The School District of Jennings is located in North St. Louis County and is adjacent to the City of St. Louis. It is composed of three small townships, Jennings, Country Club Hills, and Flordell Hills, with a total population of approximately 20,000. The School District consists of over 3,000 K-12 students. We have eight schools and one alternative program. The district's schools are Fairview Primary, Fairview Intermediate, Northview Elementary, Gary Gore Elementary, Woodland Elementary, Hanrahan Elementary, Jennings Middle School and Jennings Senior High. Each school has a principal and an instructional specialist or coach supporting their implementation of a rigorous academic curriculum. Jennings also has an alternative program that supports secondary school students who need an alternative programmatic setting outside of the traditional secondary environment. The alternative program is the Jennings Educational Training School (JETS) whose goal is to inspire academic excellence and civic responsibility. The Jennings School District engages in the learning process with honesty, creativity, dedication, and respect, and seeks to cultivate an atmosphere of freedom and trust in a safe and nurturing environment.
The mission of the Jennings School District is to ensure that each student develops a passion for learning through challenging curricula; rigorous academic standards; innovative, stimulating educational environments and a passion that education is a life long pursuit.
