JS Jenks Middle School Academy

Why You Or Your Child Should Attend


Located on 8301 Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jenks is a public school in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.


The middle school curriculum consist of challenging but understandable lesson plans. Our curriculum has allowed our middle school PSSA scores to rise above average as of the 2013/2014 school year and improve with every year. We were also featured as school of the week in the Philadelphia Tribune during the month of April. This was because of our outstanding high school preparation tactics.
