  • Mission

    At Mathews we empower and support the whole child to think critically, creatively and collaboratively.  As a community, we foster relationships in a safe and secure environment.

    Beliefs

    • We believe that a key to academic success is the partnership between students, parents, teachers, and the community.
    • We believe this partnership should provide a safe, nurturing, supportive, and challenging environment where students feel good about themselves.
    • We believe self-respect, respect for others, tolerance, and acceptance for others greatly influence academic success.
    • We believe education should produce motivated, independent thinkers who value diversity, education, and their own abilities.
    • We believe education is constantly changing and the integration of technology is important for the future.
    • We believe education should provide the stimulus by which each student will be challenged to reach his/her potential.
    • We believe the curriculum should provide the necessary skills to prepare each student for a successful life in the every day world.
    • We believe educators should continue to grow through staff development opportunities.
    • We believe Mathews Elementary must develop the unique social and emotional potential of each child in a high expectations environment.
