Music

Our music program includes a handbell choir, chime choir, treble choir, and a steel drum ensemble. Selection for membership in these groups is by audition. These select groups sometimes perform extensively for the school. This variety allows the students to explore their abilities and acquire new skills. The interactive nature of these musical ventures helps the students learn to work as a team and fosters their personal development.

Athletics

Our athletics focus includes basketball and soccer. Exercise and teamwork are crucial lessons in a healthy environment. We strive to support these ideas by having extracurricular team sports. Regular physical education classes also allow the students to learn about the importance of exercise and the role that fitness can have in a balanced life.

Spanish

JNA believes in the importance of children learning a second language from the earliest age. Students in kindergarten through fourth grade receive Spanish instruction on a weekly basis. Students in fifth to eighth grades receive Spanish instruction one class period a week in small, individualized groups. The goal is to familiarize students with the Spanish culture, traditions, and language. Activities include vocabulary development, conversation, songs, and audio-visual material interaction.
