Mission Statement Our mission at Gardenhill Elementary School is to provide a rigorous instructional program that is based on state identified academic standards. To this end, all of our staff development activities are centered on the development of research based best practices that will positively impact student achievement in reading writing and math at the 90% success level.

Vision Statement 

The Gardenhill Community spent many hours last year developing a new vision for the students at Gardenhill. Staff discussed the importance of developing the whole child and felt like Gardenhill needed to begin the 2010 - 2011 with a broader picture of our students, families and community. Not only do we want to focus on our students’ cognitive development, but also their social and emotional needs.  We are excited to  join together with you as a Gardenhill stakeholder to fulfill the following vision as we embark on a new year:

The Gardenhill Elementary School Community is committed to helping its stakeholders achieve their maximum potential by:

*Valuing and developing the whole person: social, emotional and cognitive
*Providing opportunities to explore and develop potential strengths
*Developing character
*Promoting the ability to think critically
*Advancing skills needed in a technological world

Although we highly value student achievement, we also value getting to know our students and families. We look forward to embarking on this new journey together with the Gardenhill community.
