Bath Elementary students showing their school spirit

Bath Elementary is a high-achieving school with an invigorating atmosphere for students and teachers. Teachers are proud of the academic reputation, but they are even more proud of the positive energy that permeates this building. An entire community of adults cares for each student's social-emotional health as much as their academic growth. The Bath staff is committed to providing a nurturing, family-like atmosphere for our students.

The synergy created by administration cherisheinnovation, enveloping the staff with an aura of acceptance and support. Failure is an expected learning tool. Teachers constantly collaborate to improve their craft.

Social- emotional needs are personalized as wll. The school counselor teaches classroom lessons on bullying, maintaining friendships, and managing anxiety. Self-confidence and emotional security naturally lead to greater academic success.

Bth's lunchtime Project Linus Crochet Club connects students to the community. Crocheted blankets are donated to Akron Children’s Hospital. Girls on the Run, a character-building club, is run by parents. Revere High School students teach the Girls' STEM Club that uses problem-based activities to teach the engineering process. These are just a few of the resources that benefit Bath students in ways that are hard to quantify, but easy to observe in student enthusiasm.

Our school culture is created by a staff who takes ownership of building goals, professional development, and academic programming. They enjoy helping and working together, which leads to close relationships and friendships. Programs developed by Bath teachers and our community provide students with opportunities to develop lasting bonds between students, staff, and parents.
