Welcome to Jenner Campus
Grades 5-8 & PreK (Head Start)
At Ogden, we realize that a child’s years from 5th to 8th grade are an important time for growth and self-discovery. It is a critical time when students develop their interests, learn new talents, and face challenges that are unique to their age group. As an International Baccalaureate school, once the students complete 5th grade (and complete their PYP Exhibition project), they move from the PYP to the MYP programme. The MYP is a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. Student choice is critical at this time in a child's life and we celebrate it.
Students are encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning, take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world. They become more culturally aware and through the development of a second language they are able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.

School Breakfast and Lunch During Closure
Healthy meals will be available to our students. We recognize that our schools provide healthy meals to many of our students, and we will be providing free food boxes that will contain three days of breakfast and lunches for every student in the household. Students and families are encouraged to pick up meals at their nearest CPS school. To clarify, a student does not have to attend or be enrolled in a specific school to pick up their meals from that location. If a student does not live near an Ogden campus, but there is a closer school in their immediate area, they are encouraged to pick up their meals from that school. All families will be able to pick up meals at their nearest CPS school between 9 A.M and 1 P.M. daily. Lunchroom staff will prep, bag, and provide meals outside of the school building.
