Jewels Carpenter is a 20-year education veteran and has been a teacher, high school administrator, state-level program manager and a district-level administrator. She most recently served as Director of Career and Technical Education for the Nampa School District.

Carpenter graduated from Sonoma State with a BS in Kinesiology and became a Nationally Certified Athletic trainer, who worked with both high school and college athletes helping them prepare mentally and physically for their athletic seasons.

“I absolutely love teaching and serving the people in my community of Nampa. We have been here for 20-years and I can’t wait to continue to help this community be stronger and healthier,” shared Carpenter.

We Believe In...

We believe that all students, who have the opportunity to engage in school and activities that inspire them, will be more likely to develop habits and dispositions that will lead to success in the workplace and in life.

We believe in supporting students in their path towards ownership of and success in their life. We provide opportunities to build life skills through our Power 100 curriculum.

We believe in changing the experience for students that have not enjoyed school.

We believe in learning that is personalized to meet the needs of each student. Students will learn in teams for core subject time with guidance and mentoring of their teacher to best utilize their time. Students will be provided a variety of ways to learn from group settings, hands on experiences, and independent work based on their individual needs.

We believe in second chances. Elevate has created Peak and Crest programs that allows students who are behind in credits to participate and earn industry certifications and their workforce readiness certificate while catching up on credits that lead to graduation.

We believe in the Social and Emotional needs of all students. Elevate Academy Nampa is partnering with local support organizations to provide resources that will be available to our students and their families.
