We are proud to be Little School Labradors!

The E. E. Little School may be small, but there are "BIG" things happening here. First and foremost, through the dedication and hard work of the faculty, staff, and parent organization, we have created a safe and supportive learning environment. We foster a love of learning through relationship-building and collaborative work. There is a culture of mutual respect and our students are thriving. Our motto, "We Believe in YOU" demonstrates our belief that perseverance and the celebration of each student's uniqueness can lead to their success in academics and in anything they choose to endeavor.

Educating the whole child is a priority of the E. E. Little School. Our focus on social emotional wellness impacts everything we do on a daily basis. Our students are encouraged to take risks, explore their unique interests, and to have a voice in their education. We offer a challenging and rigorous curriculum, exploration through technology, and a strong arts program (including music, visual arts, and drama). We seek to develop well-rounded, empathetic and socially conscious individuals. Our extra-curricular activities provide additional opportunities for students to discover their interests. Little School students are happy, healthy and excited about their learning. They are problem-solvers, supportive friends, and concerned community members.

At the E. E. Little School, we recognize the shared responsibility of our students, staff, and parents to prepare our children to be college and career ready. Together we work to ensure they are prepared to face the complexities of today's ever-changing world.
