    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.
