Johnston Square Elementary is a community school in East Baltimore that is determined to provide a quality school experience for every child that walks through it's doors on a daily basis. The motto of JSE is that "Our Lives Depend on Our Education" and we understand that there is a professional and moral obligation to provide our children with an education that will provide them an opportunity to make a positive impact on this world. It is a school defined by a caring staff that goes above and beyond to provide for it's children. It is also defined by it's community partnerships which provide academic support as well as resources to support students and families. We seek to teach our children the skills needed to become productive citizens through social emotional learning courses. We provide opportunities for enrichment through our partnerships with the YMCA, Lee Lee Flag Football Incorporated and other community partners. At JSE there are numerous opportunities for students to experience learning outside of the classroom through artist residencies, assemblies, and field trips.
