Elementary education in Hillsborough County Public Schools centers on nurturing our students to become life-long learners. The principles of an elementary education go beyond reading, writing and mathematics to prepare young minds for the rigor of higher order thinking, problem solving and academic success.
Elementary classrooms provide an intellectually stimulating environment where each student reaches his or her maximum potential by using multiple teaching methods. A combination of student-teacher interaction and peer learning enrich the classroom while emphasizing the importance of student responsibility and self-discipline.
In addition to academic challenges, learning is made fun by activities that are designed to encourage new discoveries. Using experiences both inside and outside the classroom our teachers incorporate learning into a multitude of programs.
