The George Washington Elementary School is a beautiful three story building situated on eleven acres of land. The original footprint, erected in 1927 has undergone two expansions to accommodate a growing population.
Our goal is to provide a solid foundation in literacy, numeracy and democracy for our Patriots. Toward that end, George Washington School offers a nurturing educational environment that supports all students on a journey towards personal excellence. Our students, in grades K through five, are engaged in meaningful learning opportunities that encourage academic success and personal growth while preparing them to be citizens of our global society.
Our balanced literacy approach, inquiry in Math, discovery in Science, and exploration in Social Studies are all aligned with the new Common Core Learning Standards. Technology is embedded throughout the curriculum to further enhance and support student learning. Our Dual Language Academy, available in all grades, provides an opportunity for students enrolled to become bi-literate and bi-cultural by the end of grade five. Our Media Center, the hub of our school, provides a stimulating environment for students, teachers and parents to immerse themselves in rich literature and research.
Our grade level author visits, Family Nights (Math, Reading, Family Fitness, Dance, International Children’s Festival), and parent educational workshops create opportunities for students and families to participate in extended learning throughout the year. We welcome and encourage our families to partner with us on our students educational journey.
