Sharon Elementary "Educating Beyond Expectations"

Summary

Sharon Elementary is highly committed to providing well-rounded, rigorous, and authentic learning for all students. Our school encompasses a collaborative team of educators dedicated to preparing our 21st century learners for college, careers, and beyond. Our teachers utilize a variety of instructional methods, research-based strategies, and innovative tools to provide challenging, engaging, and authentic learning experiences at every grade level. Keeping students at the focus of our instructional practices, we know we are shaping future leaders, lifelong learners, critical and creative problem solvers, as well as effective communicators.

Core to the positive culture and high academic achievement at Sharon are strong parent/school relationships. On any given day, parents can be observed working with learners on a variety of academic activities. Our nationally recognized PTA supports the school by providing educational enrichment in literacy, math, science, social studies, technology, and the arts. Our school's success is a direct result of the collaborative efforts of students, teachers, families, and community members.

Sharon Elementary prides itself on innovation and providing challenging learning experiences which incorporate latest trends in educational technology and instructional methodologies. Our students are active learners and immersed in meaningful, experiential learning. The creation of a Science Lab, outdoor classroom (DIGS), along with a media center renovation and emphasis on technology integration have fostered meaningful and authentic application of learning. Our students and teachers are empowered to embrace challenges, become self-directed learners, and think beyond self-perceived limits. All stakeholders play a vital role in fulfilling our school's mission "Educating Beyond Expectations."
