A Growing District in Suburban Communities

  • In the last 11 years, we have opened 14 new schools and reconstructed two older schools
  • For the 2019-20 school year, we opened Ridge View Elementary, Mountain Point Elementary, Mountain Creek Middle and Mountain Ridge High.  We also completed a rebuild of the West Jordan Middle School
  • We will be opening two new schools in 2020 (one elementary school and one middle school).

Unique Opportunities Abound

  • Each year Jordan teachers have a non-threatening, simple way to transfer to a different school within the District if circumstances ever change. We call it the "Teacher Transfer Fair".
  • Options of working at Year-Round, Modified or Traditional Elementary Schools
  • Nationally recognized and ranked programs including Drill, Music, Sports, Debate, HOSA, and many more.
  • Each classroom comes equipped with an iPad, an Apple TV, a projector, along with the teacher issued computer.
  • Increased funding provides at least a full-time guidance equivalency in each of our schools, comprised of school psychologists, counselors, and/or social workers. Due to grant funding some elementary schools have two full-time guidance specialists!
