“Jesus Loves the little children, all the children of the world”. As this children’s song teaches us that Jesus’ love for all children, Jenison Christian School desires to show that love to all of God’s children at JCS. To do this, we offer different levels of support for academic, social/behavioral, physical, spiritual, and emotional support for our students. We celebrate the uniqueness of each child and encourage them in the gifts God has given them!
Our Goal: With a focus on inclusion in the classroom and community, we aim to empower every student to see themselves as uniquely created by God. We are committed to meeting the learning needs of all our students.
We support students using research and evidence based best practices with our team of directors and paraprofessionals.
