Washington Elementary School is a community of diverse learners. Our mission will ensure that all students meet and exceed the NJSLS, and develop the skills necessary to become life-long learners, and productive citizens in the 21st century.

We believe:

  1. All students are unique and learn best in a safe, caring, and motivating environment that is based on mutual respect.
  2. Students can apply learning strategies in order to develop critical, creative, problem-solving, and decision-making skills while taking ownership for their learning.
  3. Students can develop the pro-social skills necessary to ensure a respectful and collaborative learning environment.
  4. Optimum learning occurs when teachers communicate learning goals to students and parents, and support their achievement through standards-based instruction and on-going assessment.
  5. It is the responsibility of the administration and the Board of Education to provide leadership in collaboration with the other members of the school community, to support and inspire students to reach their highest potential.

We value:

  1. A strong home-school connection
  2. A standards-based curriculum/differentiated instruction
  3. Formative and summative assessments
  4. Student strategies for independent learning/shared responsibility/accountability
  5. Collaboration and communication/shared leadership/active participation among the community of learners
  6. Job-embedded professional learning that creates consistency and continuity of instruction across grade levels and content areas

Our mission will become a reality when it is supported by actions that are driven by our beliefs and our values.
