Fourth Street Learning Center

The Fourth Street Learning Center is a JPS school within a school.  It is a small learning community designed to offer specialized attention to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.Our focus is the social, emotional, and academic success of individual students.  Through a variety of teaching strategies teachers will engage students in non-traditional instructional methods.

The Learning Center is a fully functioning small learning community with a dedicated staff that includes teachers, counselor, para professionals, resource room, administration, and dean of student behavior. The Learning Center will be housed in the 100 wing of The Middle School at Parkside. 

In our unique, research-based, setting students will benefit from smaller class size, a later start time, tremendous access to technology, and a flexible instructional schedule to meet the needs of struggling learners. Most importantly, our staff is committed to building and maintaining positive, personal relationships with students.


We will bring our community together to create a culture of academic excellence and workforce readiness.


We envision a community where all students become lifelong learners.
