In a New Way
A high quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world. We develop the ability to notice patterns and make connections in every aspect of life. This is mastery. The ability to explain, justify and reason for these observations is the application of the mental arithmetic and mathematical fluency. Through open-ended investigations, children develop an appreciation for the beauty and power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

I chose to work at JPS because of the wonderful atmosphere I could sense, even from the across the oceans. I loved that the school’s focus wasn’t purely academic; there is a big emphasis on children’s emotional and mental wellbeing, achieved through play and a well thought-out curriculum.
