Jersey City Global Charter School
The mission of JCGCS is to ensure that all of our students (Grades K-3 in 2014-2015) achieve academic excellence, are ready for the rigors of higher education and master essential skills that prepare them for the economic, social and civic challenges of a 21st century global society. JCGCS provides a safe, exceptional academic environment that cultivates independent learning, character enrichment and global awareness while developing accountable leaders, responsible community stewards and motivated and diverse thinkers. We recognize that leaders are made and not born and support an educational approach by which our children can develop into leaders of themselves and of their community. Our students, families and teachers celebrate the richness of diversity - with roots in more than 28 countries.
