Study Lab

Why not catch the power of better study habits and improved grades?

Study Lab is an after-school opportunity for your child to get organized and develop a plan. It offers a quiet place – free of distractions – for accomplishing tasks at the end of the school day. All JMS students are invited to attend. Study Lab will be offered each Tuesday and Thursday from 3:15-4:00 p.m. in Room 002 or the remainder of the year.

A JMS staff member will guide students to review their assignments, via Schoology, and to prioritize school work to include missing and incomplete assignments, as well as to plan for future assignments. If a Study Lab student displays confidence and competence in their work, the student will be provided the time and space to complete school work independently during the time allotted. If the student demonstrates a need, the staff member will provide more direct support in planning for work completion.

Study Lab will also provide students another structured opportunity to connect with their on-and off-team teachers to obtain materials, submit assignments, and seek additional guidance from teachers after school.  JMS teachers are generally available to meet with students most days after school through 3:45pm.

Overall, Study Lab will assist your child with their individual academic needs in a fun, focused, and structured environment.

Attendance Policy

If a student cannot attend Study Lab they are expected to make the staff members (Study Lab Coordinators) aware with a note/email from a parent or through spoken communication. Parents may also contact the staff member via email if a student cannot attend or if they have any general questions about their child's participation.

Please email Mr. Peter Berg ( for more information.
