Old Country Road School Mission Statement

Old Country Road Elementary School seeks to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for children from diverse cultural backgrounds. Instruction is developmentally appropriate and allows for individual differences and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. Each student's self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in our students' learning.
