Principal's Message

Whitney's Mission   

Valuing each individual’s diversity and worth, the mission of Whitney Avenue Elementary is to educate and nurture each child to be a cooperative and independent learner with the skills to be prepared for the future (a productive (global citizen)) through rigorous evidence based programs and creative problem solving, in a physically and emotionally safe, collaborative learning environment, shared by staff, families, students, and community. We provide opportunities for enrichment, intervention, and remediation as necessary to meet the needs of all students at Whitney. We set high expectations for all students. 

Our Objectives

With the support from all stakeholders each student will develop and apply the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will prepare them for college or career readiness and enable appropriate utilization of cooperative and independent learning strategies in an ever- changing world.  It is our goal that each student will demonstrate persistent growth in Core Content areas and Social Emotional Learning as determined, but not limited to, multiple measures of achievement and growth including reflection, self-assessments, and goal setting. Additionally, each student will develop and consistently practice character traits needed to become compassionate, contributing, cooperative, and responsible citizens.
