The Mission of
The J.K. Haynes Charter Schools Foundation
The J.K. Haynes Charter Schools Foundation (JKHCSF) takes as its mission to be a robust support system built to assist the students of J.K Haynes Charter School (JKHCS) in bringing out their next-level talents in Science, Arts and Humanities while at the same time grooming the next generation of creative young teachers.
The Aspirational Vision of
The J.K. Haynes Charter School
The overarching goal of The J.K. Haynes Charter School (JKHCS) is to assist students in realizing their maximum potential as human beings by providing them with a first-rate education in the sciences, mathematics and the humanities. Communication skills are essential to learning and particular focus will be placed on skills in Mathematics, English and computing, the latter in recognition of the increasing importance of computing skills in communication. Students will not only be competent in the use of computers but in writing code upon completion of the curriculum.
We recognize that we live in a time that more than ever needs geniune leaders, and that our society would be better served by persons who had leadership training, beginning as early as possible. To this end, our curriculum will seek to develop leadership skills in our students including providing exposure to the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Early exposure to the humanities, including music, art and foreign languages is critical to preparing young people to live a well-rounded life, and giving them the passion to contribute to society. Therefore, our curriculum in the humanities will be strong with an emphasis on musical expression, particularly musical styles created by African-Americans, including spirituals and Jazz. ©
