    Douglas L. Jamerson, Jr. Elementary is a countywide magnet program with an emphasis on the whole child. In collaboration with parents, the teachers establish a foundation of intellectual curiosity that is the core of classroom learning experiences. Utilizing an integrated engineering curriculum written by Jamerson teachers (with input from engineering professors), students are intellectually challenged to problem-solve, think outside the box, work collaboratively and strengthen their growth mindset. Students conduct research, plan solutions, construct models, test effectiveness, analyze results, and communicate solutions.
