Our School

Mission Statement

It is the mission of John Adams Elementary school to provide a strong academic program and to create an environment that fosters success for all students.  It is our aim to develop an understanding that cultural and individual differences strengthen our community as well as to nurture in each child the lifelong desire to learn. Building a community where students, parents, and teachers communicate openly will help us to achieve our goal of developing productive, responsible members of our global society.

Our Beliefs

  • Learning can be fun when it occurs in a joyful, stimulating environment.
