Mission Statement

Gwin Elementary will establish a strong foundation for lifelong learning for all students by providing opportunities for academic, social, physical, and emotional growth in a child-centered environment. We will use a variety of research-based strategies to ensure that each student reaches his/her maximum potential. 

We believe: 

  • All children can learn and experience success. 
  • Instruction and assessment should be multi-faceted and implemented through best practices. 
  • Children build on prior knowledge, so they will be provided meaningful opportunities to construct their own knowledge through a multitude of experiences. 
  • An environment that encourages curiosity, risk-taking, and self-expression is essential for learning. 
  • Cultural diversity, individualism, and compassion for others enhance our environment. 
  • Continuous improvement is essential to the success of our children, school and community.
  • The arts are an essential component in the overall development of our children.
