City Year Jacksonville is proud to begin their new partnership this year with Jean Ribault Middle School. Jean Ribault Middle School implements the early high school magnet program which prepares students for success in high school, as well as provides opportunities to build academic and leadership skills. Through this program, students are also given the chance to enroll in high school level courses which allows them to earn high school credits while in middle school. The magnet program at Jean Ribault Middle School challenges their student’s academic capabilities to better prepare them for their high school career.
Jean Ribault Middle is on a mission to provide exceptional educational opportunities in every classroom, for every student, every day. City Year corps members are placed in six mathematic classes and four English classes to assist staff members with the curriculum while also ensuring that the mission is being accomplished. Our City Year corps members are focused on creating a strong foundation with staff and students because we believe that a strong foundation will increase the number of students that will benefit from this new partnership. City Year Jacksonville is very excited to build a strong partnership with Jean Ribault Middle school and help the students soar to new academic heights.
