Charlotte Hill Elementary School staff embrace a whole child approach to education. The culture of the school is rooted in the belief that all students, regardless of background and socioeconomic status, are capable of learning at high levels. Students learn in a nurturing, inclusive environment which promotes academic achievement, social emotional well-being, learner confidence, and perseverance. Staff understand that meeting the needs of each child in a safe and secure environment maximizes the potential to learn.

The school community is highly collaborative. Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) meet frequently to design high-quality lessons, review data, and develop interventions. Teachers participate in ongoing professional learning opportunities that promote continuous improvement and implementation of best practices. Emphasis is placed on designing rigorous, engaging, student-centered learning experiences. The faculty are committed to implementing the most effective instructional approaches to close achievement gaps. Additionally, all students are provided with Chromebooks, and technology is integrated into daily lessons.

Engaging parents and enlisting community support is a school priority. Parents are invited to participate in parent education nights, open house, parent teacher conferences, socials, and other school events. Through partnerships with local businesses and nonprofit organizations, the school is able to support families with resources such as food, clothing, toiletries, and supplies. Additionally, staff connect families with resources for medical services, counseling, and other community services. These family and community partnerships support students and families to overcome the challenges of poverty and achieve academic success.
