The mission of Bryker Woods Elementary School is to educate all students through an enriched, differentiated curriculum in a cooperative manner, so that they  become successful, responsible citizens.

We believe:

  • all children should have the best educational opportunities.
  • all children should be allowed to develop to their potential emotionally, socially, academically, and physically.
  • all children and teachers are entitled to a physically and emotionally safe environment.
  • children have the right to develop a role for themselves within the school community and, ultimately, in the civic community.
  • the best educational environment includes active participation by students, teachers, families and other community members.
  • all children possess special gifts, talents, skills and potential, which must be discovered and nurtured.
  • incorporate innovative teaching methods that supplement traditional classroom teaching techniques to reach students with many learning styles.
  • teachers should be given the opportunity to grow professionally and should be given the resources with which to implement newly acquired knowledge.
  • as a school, we should encourage and demonstrate positive values
