Students at Surry Elementary School are our number one priority. Our mission is to ensure that each student acquires knowledge, skills, values, and self-confidence in order to meet the challenges of a changing society. This can only be achieved through the joint partnership of school, home and community.
Student learning is the number one priority of the school. Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches, current technology and assessments to accommodate different learning styles. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process. Student's learning is the primary focus of all decisions enabling them to develop self-esteem, confidence, self-motivation, and to become life long learners and leaders. Students should be provided a safe, respectful, and healthy environment conducive to learning. Students learn integrity, responsibility, and fairness through respect for all people. All teachers are committed to ensuring the success of each student. We, as a community (teachers, administrators, parents and students) must take ownership in advancing the school's mission.
