Message from the Principal

 I am pleased to share with all viewers our new The Philadelphia Juvenile Justice Services Center School Program (PJJS) website.

 

The Philadelphia Juvenile Justice Services Center School Program (formally known as the Youth Study Center School) and satellite centers are short-term residential juvenile detention facilities, that partner with the School District of Philadelphia to provide a diverse student population with an educational program that is centered around the Core Curriculum, which addresses a variety of academic needs, as well as providing support to youth using skills required for the 21st century learner.

 

Over the past several years, we have adopted several themes to encourage and inspire our youth and staff to reach higher goals and accomplishments. Some of our past themes have been, “Going Beyond Expectations,” and “Together We Create A Better Tomorrow.” As of the 2012-2013 school year our theme is “We’re Taking Teaching and Learning Above and Beyond.” At the P.J.J.C. School, we continue to infuse one of our core values throughout the school program “an educated mind is an insightful mind.”

 

We are proud of the many achievements that our students have been able to make. These include: students winning various essay contests, students winning a variety of art competitions, as well as the production of school print and digital news publications.

 

Although, our students are in detention, our staff provides students with experiences using robotics, K’nex Education, music technology, organizing school productions and various sports activities.

 

The teachers at the P.J.J.C. have diverse skill sets that allow students to receive high caliber instruction and differentiated experiences.

 

We hope that you enjoy viewing the work products from our students. I want to provide a special thank you to Ms. Darlena E. Ward, and all other staff for making this site a reality.
