Superintendent's Office

Superintendent's Cornerrushefski

As the newly appointed Superintendent of Schools it is truly an honor to serve the students, staff, and community of Jim Thorpe Area.  My leadership approach consists of honesty, openness, integrity, and courage.  Expect students to come first with a focus on real learning as well as an opportunity to partake in athletics, arts, and hands-on real-world educational practices utilizing Twenty-First Century teaching practices. Together, we can be champions of student learning preparing our students for today, as well as tomorrow.

My hope is for the website to provide the Jim Thorpe Area Community with a platform of information to showcase the activities and resources available to educate our Olympians.  If you have any questions, we are here to help.  Do not hesitate to contact school administrators and/or myself and we will do our very best to assist.  


Mr. John Rushefski
Jim Thorpe Area School District
