At Lynchburg-Clay Elementary, “We are responsible caring citizens striving to become life-long learners.” This mission is the foundation for the day to day operations of our school. Our staff works to educate the whole child by providing a rigorous academic program and socio-emotional support to help each student develop to his/her fullest potential. Lynchburg-Clay Elementary is a great place to learn and achieve because of the people. Staff members are dedicated to the well-being of each student. We focus on developing relationships not only with students, but also parents and community. It is our belief that building relationships on a personal level strengthens the bonds between teachers and students in addition to the school and community. The success of the students, in large part, is based on fostering these positive relationships. Success is measured not only by how students perform on standardized assessments, but also the wonderful support of our community. Each staff member believes in the mission and vision. We strive to support these ideas by working as a team to meet the needs of all students. The efforts put forth have made our school a leader in the region in closing achievement gaps. This culture of success supports the district vision that all students will be “Champions in the classroom and Ambassadors for the community.”
