Royall Elementary School proudly serves 650 students in a caring environment where every child’s talents are recognized and all students are challenged to be the best that they can be. Royall's commitment to educational excellence has resulted in many state and national awards and has earned Royall a well-deserved reputation for academic achievement. Critical to our school’s success are our clearly stated and consistently enforced expectations for everyone involved in the teaching and learning process.

Royall’s curriculum is designed to insure that students are actively involved in their own learning, engaged in meaningful and challenging activities, and developing a thirst for knowledge that will help them become lifelong learners. Our school-wide emphasis on reading, along with our effective utilization of the Reading Renaissance program, have allowed us not only to teach our students to read, but more importantly, to instill in them a love of reading.

The vision, mission and beliefs that Royall Elementary School embraces are reflected not only in our students’ academic achievement and our school’s accomplishments, but also through the personal relationships that exist among all of us who are fortunate enough to be members of "The Royall Family."

Royall Elementary School is a special place where teachers love to teach and students love to learn. Our motto, "A Proud Past ...A Bright Future" captures the spirit of pride that all of us at Royall feel each and every day!
