  Mission Statement  

Whitson Elementary School is committed to developing respectful life-long learners who strive to reach their full potential.

As a school community, we are determined to:

  • Create an environment where every student feels recognized and valued.
  • Create an environment where students know they are the most important people in the school and that the entire school is dedicated to helping them learn.
  • Take every opportunity to celebrate students’ successes-those related to school improvements as well as others and make sure each student in the school receives recognition.
  • Create opportunities to talk with students and more importantly to listen to them.
  • Create understanding among our students that they are active participants in their own education and learning.

 Helping students succeed is a joint effort.  Students are most successful when all of us—the student, the family, and the school are working together.  Our school staff strives for continuous improvement in instruction.
