In 2009, the voters in University City approved a $53 million bond issue that included interior renovations and a new cafeteria, kitchen and gymnasium completed in 2011.
Jackson Park School earned the PBIS Bronze Award in 2006, 2007, 2014 and 2015.

Monsanto Fund Grant Supports Elementary STEAM
about 1 month ago
The School District of University City has been awarded a $55,000 grant from the Monsanto Fund’s K-12 Math & Science program to support STEAM initiatives in kindergarten, third and fifth grades. The initiative, titled U-Design Primary, provides students with authentic STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math) experiences through the use of Motorized Mechanisms, We Do, and EV3 Lego Education modules. The modules, in collaboration with district’s Elementary Science Curriculum, will strengthen STEAM confidence and aptitude.
U-Design will enhance students’ abilities to engage in the engineering design process (ask, imagine, plan, create, improve) to program and design robots during the school day connected to their Forces and Interactions science unit.
“We believe that integrating STEAM experiences through the teaching of the design process, leads to 21st century career-ready and innovative citizens who demonstrate the ability, confidence and inclination to deepen problem solving skills,” said Beverly Velloff, math and science curriculum coordinator.
The Monsanto Fund’s Math & Science Education K-12 grant program is designed to support programs in the St. Louis region that inspire and nurture students’ interest in math and/or science, offer innovative approaches to teaching or learning in math and science, and foster student achievement in math and/or science. Priority is given given to programs using evidence-based methodology.
