About Nancy B. Jefferson....
Our school's motto echoes the title of the powerful guide to building successful and sustainable schools, as developed by Dr. Alan M. Blankenstein. Building on a foundation that identifies courageous school leadership and the professional learning community as the center of effective school reform, NBJ implements this model’s six guiding principles:
Principle 1: Developing a foundation of shared mission, vision, and goals
Principle 2: Ensuring positive outcomes for all students, including differentiated instructions and necessary supports
Principle 3: Creating professional teams focused on collaborative, standards-based instruction
Principle 4: Implementing data-driven decision making
Principle 5: Engaging family, community, and other stakeholders in the school
Principle 6: Building leadership capacity
