San Jose Primary - Authentic Learning

San Jose Primary is the newest addition to the San Jose Schools, which serves families with a tuition-free, charter school education in Pre-K, VPK and K-12 on a single campus. San Jose Primary is accepting applications for enrollment for its opening in August 2020.

San Jose Primary serves our elementary school-age children. We are launching a unique educational model, one that is unlike any other in Northeast Florida. San Jose Primary will meet all of Florida's state testing requirements and the Sunshine Standards; however, we expect to go well beyond the basics and help your child find her/his love for learning at the earliest ages.

Be prepared to experience the benefits of an Authentic Learning environment. Authentic Learning classrooms have four characteristics: 1) The classroom activities solve real-world problems. Students mimic professionals, and they learn early how to communicate information. 2) Teachers facilitate open-ended inquiry and develop strategies for learning (metacognition). 3) Students collaborate to make learning social. 4) Students direct themselves through hands-on projects.

Your child develops the mind with play, such as building LEGO robots and improving fitness and coordination during open gym. Brain research shows that children who develop gross motor skills (done via physical activity like climbing on a play set) increase their aptitude for mathematics. Your child learns through projects, such as square-foot gardening or interviewing grandparents about historical events. Your child discovers what makes her/him most excited about school by doing drama productions or coding a video game.
