Learners Stretch to New Heights Every Day!

Conant Elementary is a fantastic place to learn and grow! We are a community of practice dedicated to creating opportunities for students to stretch their thinking every day. As a school, we seek ways to connect our classroom experiences to our local and broader global communities and aim to build confident contributors to the complex problems of tomorrow. Several areas of focus contribute to our school's continuous improvement and legacy of success. These include developing schoolwide reading and writing workshop practices, leveraging the 'Portrait of a Learner' that grounds all BHS schools, and a consistent 'students first' focus in all classrooms. We truly believe each learner can accomplish anything on which they set their sites. Our professional learning models and school communities are grounded in equitable instructional practices and routines to ensure success for all - academically, socially, and emotionally. Additionally, our school leadership teams support a culture of growth evident in our data team meetings, grade-level team meetings, and job-embedded learning labs. We are proud of our shared commitment to learning. In addition, our Global Education Teams support our close analysis of the types of routines and instructional practices that support student voice and a sense of agency in the classroom. Our entire staff commits to high expectations coupled with high support for all learners. At Conant Elementary, we strive to create spaces where everyone is valued and known.
