Academics

The academic success of all of our students is supported and enhanced through PBIS, English Learners, (EL), Early Literacy Intervention (ELI) and an array of special education services to meet the needs of all students. 

3rd–5th Grade Swimming

Students at James Madison School receive water safety and swimming lessons as part of their Physical Education instruction.

Early Literacy Intervention (ELI)

The Early Literacy Intervention (ELI) program is an intense reading support group for first and second-grade students. 

English Learners (EL)

Transitional Bilingual Programs in the Sheboygan Area School District Elementary Schools use the first language of the English Language Learner (ELL) in instruction when possible but with rapid progression to all or most of the instruction in English.

Guidance Instruction

Each class sees the school counselor for Guidance Class for 30 minutes every other week. Lessons are based on the Academic, Personal/Social, and Career Development Domains of the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for School Counseling.

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support (PBIS)

PBIS is an acronym for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to promote and teach appropriate pro-social skills and behaviors to maximize academic success for all students.

Special Education

All students should be provided with an education in the development of cognitive skills, affective skills, self-awareness, self-esteem, physical well being, and socially acceptable decision making strategies.
