Welcome to Our School
Welcome to Julia Green, or as we like to say, JG! Whenever you walk through the doors, or look out on the playgrounds and soccer fields, you see a community. Our parents are actively involved in the life of the school, whether it be volunteering in the classroom, supporting it financially through the school's "Invest" campaign or chairing one of the numerous committees.
The heart and focus of everything we do is for the children. We want to make sure we are meeting the students' needs academically, socially and emotionally. When we do things well, we constantly ask, "How can we do it better?" JG is a special place, and I encourage you to come visit!

At Julia Green Elementary, we strive to implement our mission every day, which is to create a foundation that encourages compassion, tolerance, integrity and a commitment to learning.
As an inclusive school, we focus on the whole child, including his or her academic, social and emotional needs. As an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme School, one of only a few in the district, we encourage learning through inquiry and intercultural understanding. In addition to participating in the IB program, all of our students take Chinese in K-4.
Julia Green students develop a lifelong love of learning through engaging classroom work, as well as a multitude of extracurricular activities and special events. One of our favorites is the Read-a-Thon fundraiser. During this time, students work hard and read wherever they go. Parents participate by reading to their younger children, counting book credits or volunteering when special guest speakers come to the school to read. When they come back to visit, Julia Green alumnae still talk about how many books they read during Read-a-Thon.
