A message from our principal

Jennykaye Hampton, JSA Principal

Greetings from Johnson STEAM Academy (JSA)! JSA is a place where learning comes to life. Our mission is to guide all learners to discover their passions through innovative learning experiences. We teach STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) content through an integrated approach using hands-on, project-based learning experiences to increase student engagement, attendance, and academic proficiency. Students are encouraged to pursue their passions and interests, allowing teachers to utilize that powerful force to teach the children the critical content and concepts they need to learn and grow. The Design Process and 21st century skills are integrated throughout a variety of subjects. Teachers and students interact and learn across age ranges and throughout the school and community.

We are igniting passion, cultivating character, and helping students achieve their dreams here at JSA because it is the JSA WAY!
