Sarah H. Joslyn School, the home to over 410 Joslyn Jaguars, opened its doors on January 26, 1976. Sarah Joslyn and her husband, George, were prominent citizens of early Omaha. Their home, called the Joslyn Castle, once housed the adminstrative offices of the Omaha Public Schools. Mrs. Joslyn also donated the funds for the Joslyn Museum in honor of her husband.
For the most part, the Joslyn attendance area is north of Blondo Street. The area directly across from the school is now designated as our attendance area. This includes the Oakbrook subdivision and the Vanderbilt apartments. Our west boundary is 132nd Street north to Maple, with the exception of the Eagle Run subdivision. Maple Street is the north boundary; 108th Street is our east boundary.
Joslyn School has grades pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. In addition, we have one classroom of Early Childhood Special Education for 3 to 4 year olds. Last year we were excited to start offering All Day Kindergarten. Joslyn School is indeed a busy place filled with great learning opportunities.
