To engage every student in rigorous, well-rounded, instructional activities that promote critical thinking, complex problem-solving and effective participation in a holistic STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) program to succeed in college and career endeavors as lifelong learners.


Mahalia Jackson is a school where students develop a positive sense of self and others. We empower our students to collaborate, own their learning, and acquire a growth mindset in order to persevere through academic and social challenges. Our students are supported and inspired by a community of adults that possess the habits of reflection, compassion, perseverance, and collaboration in order to continuously improve their professional practice. We acknowledge that our school’s, student’s and community’s success will be dependent upon our partnership and ability to work together for the betterment and future of our students.
