A Child Centered Curriculum
Students at Morris Jeff participate in inquiry based instruction, which encourages the natural curiosity of children and ties subject matter together in a meaningful, applicable manner. Along with standard, core subjects of language arts, math, science, and social studies, students have instruction in Spanish, the arts, and physical education daily. The Comprehensive Curriculum of Louisiana, which incorporates the state standards and grade level expectations for all grades provides the basis for all public schools in the state, including Morris Jeff where rigor and high expectations are central to teaching and learning. Faculty at Morris Jeff are developing cross disciplinary units of study which allow students to form connections across their subjects. We invite you to come and visit our classes, and meet with our faculty and principal.
