Benjamin Jepson Interdistrict Magnet School is Located in New Haven, Connecticut. We service students from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. Students travel through their academic career here at Jepson starting at age 3 and ending in 8th grade on the Senior Team.
Multi-age classrooms where students learn and work together in mixed-age groupings, is the foundation of our unique philosophy. At Jepson, students have the opportunity to remain with teachers for 2 consecutive years, allowing teacher the additional time to know and understand each child in their academic and social environment. In these flexible groups, children are able to receive support and enrichment with their same age peers while receiving a rigorous and academically-challenging education that prepares them for the real world.
In our multi-aged classrooms, students are able to become peer mentors, which allows them to become successful as they enter their post secondary education. Students at Jepson perform small group projects along with significant tasks within their classroom with olders and youngers working together to foster cooperation and social skills.
