Welcome to more than one hundred years of rich tradition and excellence at Jarrettsville Elementary School (JVES). Constituted as the Jarrettsville Academy in 1902, Jarrettsville served as an elementary and high school through 1949. With the completion of North Harford High School in 1950, Jarrettsville became exclusively an elementary school.
Jarrettsville Elementary School has been recognized by the Maryland Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a Maryland Green School. Our faculty and staff are dedicated professionals focused on meeting the needs of the whole child through a challenging individualized academic program coupled with a values based character education program.
Jarrettsville Elementary has an active PTA consisting of parents, educators, and community members who collaborate to provide activities, programs, and family nights to enrich our students. This supports our vision of a community-based school where the students, staff, parents, and community work together in a collegial manner to foster an excitement for learning. We are also fortunate to have a strong and supportive Parks and Recreation program, which provides after school activities that challenge and encourage our students physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
