Welcome to Mt. Vernon Elementary School
Mt. Vernon School is a dynamic, multifaceted program that focuses on the whole child.
Our vision is to provide an effective school environment where the study of traditional academics and study in the arts are given mutual respect and merge to provide enrichment and acceleration of academic, aesthetic and artistic excellence. We maintain that our climate demonstrates an unconditional positive regard for students, staff, and community. We believe with a rich relevant program, all children can learn, experience a joy for learning and become life-long learners. Finally, we believe that teamwork involving parents, staff, students, and community is vital to student success. We believe that:
- Knowledge empowers students.
- Learning is a life-long pursuit.
- A sense of belonging is essential to studentsí well being.
- A studentís potential is unlimited.
- Education is our highest priority.
- All students should be prepared to participate in a multi-cultural society.
