From James Irwin Charter Elementary School

James Irwin Charter Elementary School (JICES) was founded in 2005. It is a Kindergarten through 5th grade elementary school with the James Irwin Charter Schools’ brand of academic excellence and character development. Key to this excellence is the teaching of Core Knowledge™ using Direct Instruction™.

For 7 years in a row, JICES and our other elementary school have received the Gazette's Best of the Springs Award for Best Elementary School. JICES is located at our Astrozon Campus at Astrozon and Powers and is known for its family-friendly atmosphere, love of country, and its back-to-basics approach to phonics, math facts and learning about our Founding Fathers/Constitution. Free bus transportation is available from any of the James Irwin schools plus Peterson Air Force Base.
