Language & Literacy Development

Recognizing the importance of language and literacy in the early stages of education, JCS Elementary offers a comprehensive program that supports the development of reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Through a balanced mix of literature, and interactive storytelling, we aim to cultivate a passion for reading and a strong foundation in language arts. Our dedicated teachers employ diverse strategies to accommodate different learning styles, ensuring that every student can achieve literacy proficiency and confidence.


Our English curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). By emphasizing reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language, our English Language Arts program guides students to establish foundational English skills through building robust vocabulary and grammar, reading diverse texts and literature, and articulating on various topics. These foundational skills will further support students in developing their critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical skills.


Our math curriculum has been built around Singapore math to cultivate students’ analytic and inferential reasoning. After learning the such basic concepts of mathematics as geometry, sizes, shapes, planes, solids, and symbols, students move onto measurements, currency value, multiplication and division, fractions, decimals, graphs, symmetry, deductive reasoning, and word problems.


Our science program has been developed to assist students in extrapolation of scientific theories and principles to the real world. They learn to observe and analyze their surrounding environment and to solve problems through the engineering design process.

Korean Language & Literature

Our Elementary Korean curriculum focuses on Korean language and culture with the aim of instilling in students Korean identity. In strict accordance with the content of the state-issued Korean textbooks and the requirements by the Ministry of Education, we emphasize speaking, hearing, reading, and writing to improve students’ overall Korean skills.
