Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to prepare students to choose the life they want. 

Personalized Learning - A Vision

At Scott Elementary we tailor learning to each individual's strengths, needs and interests. Learners of all ages have "voice and choice" in determining what, how, when and where the learning occurs.  Teachers and administrators provide the flexibility and support to ensure mastery of the highest standard possible. All truly means all. 

Personalized Learning - A Set of Values

At Scott Elementary we value, welcome, and inspire students and our community to make a positive and lasting impact both personally and academically. We help students excel in their unique ways and build lifelong learners and leaders who possess integrity and determination. We believe in creating a safe learning community through positive relationships and an environment where students feel confident because their voices matter.
