"Shining New Light on Academic Excellence!"
Shenandoah Elementary Mission Statement
The vision and mission of Shenandoah Elementary has been clear since 1973: to provide the best education possible for the children of our school so that we may improve their academic abilities. The faculty, staff, and parents recognize that each child is unique with individual needs and strengths. Children should be challenged toward self-discipline, academic achievement, and a set of values that allow them to pursue worthwhile goals and to strive for success. Teacher/student and teacher/parent relationships, based on mutual understanding and cooperation, contribute greatly to the overall student learning process. Our school, as an institution of learning, shares responsibility with the home and community to meet the needs of the students. Our challenge is to guide, with understanding, wisdom, and patience, the development of individual students, thereby helping them achieve their maximum potential to take their places as effective citizens in a changing world.
At Shenandoah Elementary, we offer a child-centered environment for our kindergarten through fifth grade students. The instructional program is inclusive of academic, social, and emotional growth and development efforts. When we unite to put “Children First”, our directions and efforts will bring success. We invite you to visit and work in our school. We appreciate your support!
