Superintendent's Message

Thank you for your interest in Jenison Public Schools! It’s our privilege to partner with you to create a great experience for your child. Aside from award-winning programs and a range of academic options, Jenison students of all ages learn the principles of The Wildcat Way — character education based on personal responsibility, empathy and respect. These are just a few of the traits that empower kids to reach their full potential while becoming caring, respectful, contributing citizens. 

With character education at the heart of our efforts, the JPS strategic plan is built on three key pillars that guide our priorities. They are:

Elevating Student Achievement

By opening the door to new opportunities and fostering the strengths of each individual, we’ll provide additional pathways to elevate achievement and help all students reach their full potential.

Inspiring Community Service

We believe greatness begins with a heart bent toward service. By engaging our district in coordinated service opportunities, we’ll build empathy, practice compassion and help kids connect to their purpose. 

Unlocking Leadership Potential

Working with our teams, we’ll empower students, teachers, administrators and entire buildings to innovate, improve and lead the next chapter of excellence in Jenison Public Schools.

Want to learn more?

We know there is nothing more important than finding a place where your child can flourish, grow and be successful. So, if you’re looking for a district to call home or are curious about our course offerings or programs, I’d love to meet you, answer your questions and show you around. 

If you’re a community member interested in working with us for service days or presenting potential high school career track partnerships, I’d love to connect with you, too. We’re exploring innovative pathways to benefit our students and our local businesses, and you could be part of our efforts!
