Leadership

The Mission of Clover Ridge Elementary School is to develop self-directed, responsible, lifelong learners.

Clover Ridge Elementary School is a welcoming community that inspires the excitement of learning. Children and adults are engaged in exploration, problem solving and the practice of newly gained knowledge and skills. Achievement for all is developed through personalized learning experiences supported by curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Partnerships among students, parents, teachers, staff and community members play an essential role in each learner’s success. Clover Ridge Elementary School is a focal point in creating the future of the community it serves.

We believe that:

  • each person has the ability to learn and be successful

  • collaboration, teamwork and high expectations ensure success
  • parents/guardians are valued partners in his/her child’s education
  • students, staff, and families thrive in a safe learning environment that upholds the community values and promotes social, emotional and physical well-being
  • staff, students, parents, and community partnerships enhance community service, foster connections across the curriculum and link learning to real-life experiences
  • clear, honest and continuous communication among all stakeholders is essential to the learning process
  • technology is a tool to help learners acquire, create and apply knowledge and skills
  • a variety of assessment tools will provide needed feedback for continuous improvement
  • celebration of effort and learning encourages future success
