Frank A. Berry Elementary School Vision

All students at Frank A. Berry School will demonstrate proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics as they are engaged in purposeful work that is differentiated and challenging. We will strive to build every student’s ability to think critically and creatively, as students will be involved in collaborative experiences where they will be expected to communicate effectively, question ideas, and discover new perspectives. Students will learn to persevere through challenges and reflect on their learning. Respect, responsibility, and kindness will be cornerstones of all we do, as we strive to excel academically, and continue to grow socially and emotionally.
