Mark Upward, Principal

Welcome to Jolley Elementary School. Jolley, located at 224 South University, is just south of the University of South Dakota campus. Jolley School was built in 1959 and has been remodeled twice in the past 20 years. We are an upper elementary school housing second, third, fourth, and fifth grade students. Our enrollment each year is approximately 380-400 students. Jolley students have access to three computer labs, a media center, and an after school program. Specialized teachers provide instruction in music, physical education, computer, media, and guidance to our students. Other services available to students would include Title I, Special Education, speech, E.S.L., Occupational Therapy services, and Physical Therapy services.

Our teachers are up to date with current trends in education and are provided in-service training on many educational topics. Our teaching staff continues to provide a quality education to the students of Jolley School. The Vermillion P.T.A. is active in Jolley School with support, materials, and time.

Jolley has an active student council with 38 members, 19 representatives and 19 alternates. These students are the voice for the student body and, as such, have created many interesting and exciting activities. Our student council works towards making Jolley a better place to be.
