Our Mission

We believe that children can reach their full potential in a nurturing environment. We also believe that teachers, students, administrators and parents have the right to feel safe and respected for what they have to contribute to the education of the students at Shirley Avenue Elementary.
The mission of Shirley Avenue Elementary School is to produce well-rounded children who have the ability to think critically, master the Common Core grade level standards, and possess character skills that will allow them to be productive members of our society.
Shirley Avenue Elementary will maintain a cohesive and positive school environment. Teachers will be able to collaborate, and design curriculum to address the specific needs of the students. Our faculty and administration along with parents work together for the common goal of ensuring that all students perform to their full potential.
