Academic Support

Remedial Language Support
Mother tongue language teachers are responsible for identifying students with reading and writing difficulties (or consulting with other teachers who have concerns about a student’s reading and writing) and referring them to a specially trained member of staff, or via the school counselors to outside services for more evaluation.

Limited remedial language support is offered contingent on available teacher hours; students and parents are urged to seek remedial services or learning therapy outside of school to support student success.

Math Lab
In 7th grade all students are assessed early in the school year and those whose skills are not on grade level must attend Math Lab which is taught by JFKS math teachers. Depending on teacher availability, teachers offer math support for other grades during lunch hour. The math department also offers extra math activities for gifted math students.

Homework Help
A homework help group is offered Monday, Tuesday,Thursday and Friday from 15:00-15.45, Participation is by agreement with the supervising pedagogical assistant, Ms. Barbara Lopocz, in the form of an attendance contract also signed by parents. The purpose of this group is to provide a structured homework setting; occasionally older students are available for subject help, depending on schedules. A new offering for study skills and organization support is in planning and will be implemented soon.
