At North Star Elementary, we believe in keeping the students at the forefront of everything we do. The decisions we make reflect much thought and consideration about what is best for students and their achievement and growth. We know elementary school is an important time in their lives; A time where they acquire a love of learning, an understanding of how to work with other, develop possible solutions for problem solving, and have many opportunities to think critically. We believe it’s our responsibility to create a warm and engaging learning environment where students find joy and purpose in what they are asked to do. At the heart of North Star, lies what is possible! Students are inspired to rise above the challenges they face and use what they have learned to create boundless opportunities for themselves in the future.
In 2011, the North Star community began the work of transforming teaching and learning, and moving the school forward in rigorous and meaningful ways. We continually strive to improve our teaching practice, while creatively finding solutions to any barriers that may exist to achieving our goals. The practices we use with our curriculum prepare students for the dynamic world in which we live. These practices include opportunities for creative and critical thinking, communication, collaboration, leadership, service learning, and more. We strive to cultivate these skills at developmentally appropriate levels and are proud of the learning our students demonstrate. We are honored that we have the opportunity to work with your children each day.
