At Fernwood Elementary School we acknowledge each student as a unique individual with specific needs, talents, and concerns. We believe that each child should be perceived and responded to in accordance with his/her intellectual, emotional, social, and physical needs. We seek to assist the student in achieving his/her goals, coping with specific concerns, and developing a positive and healthy self-concept. We feel that the best way this can be attained is by having a comprehensive program that makes available to the student opportunities in the areas of academics, technology and student activities.
At Fernwood Elementary, promoting and supporting high achievement for all students is the primary mission of Fernwood Elementary School. To accomplish this mission, we believe that it is the responsibility of the school to provide a student-centered, comprehensive, safe and caring learning environment for all children. Moreover, the mission of Fernwood Elementary School includes the development of confident, competent children who are well-prepared for college and/or careers in a culturally diverse democratic society.
What We Believe:
We believe strongly in achieving excellence and equity for every child.
We believe that every child has talent and has something valuable to contribute to our society and to other people.
We believe in our professional staff and expect them to be performance-oriented in helping students meet today's problems as well as the challenges of tomorrow.
We believe that if this is accomplished, children will then come to realize more fully their own potential as individuals and are better prepared to appreciate and act responsible in the society in which they live.
