Great Schools

Findley Oaks Elementary

The faculty and staff of Findley Oaks believe that every child is entitled to an education based on a school program designed to meet individual needs. The school provides a setting where each learner may grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and aesthetically. Each student will experience the joy of learning when a caring team of educators provide a warm and positive environment.

The staff recognizes the uniqueness of each child and his/her right to succeed. They strive to help each child develop attitudes and habits consistent with a democratic society. It is essential that each student develop a positive self-concept while respecting the rights of others and the dignity of all.

They acknowledge that students must be ready to function effectively as responsible
citizens in a changing global society. They believe they must prepare our students to use skills creatively, to think critically and to become effective decision makers.

These goals can be reached only with the full cooperation of parents, teachers, students and administrators. We, as educators and members of the community, strive to prepare our students to go forth with a feeling of pride and acceptance with the tools needed for a productive station in tomorrow's world.
