Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is to prepare students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in a manner that is substantive, rigorous, and thorough, so that they will be better equipped with the skills necessary to compete in the 21st Century. We believe that with an emphasis on Language Arts and Mathematics our students will be more able to achieve success in middle school and high school.

We also believe that:
• All children can learn at high levels.
• Adults at the school are responsible for making a positive difference in lives of children.
• English fluency and literacy skills will be acquired in the primary grades.
• Leadership coaching for students and parents will enhance student/school success.
• Scholarly behaviors and expectations will be taught, enforced, and practiced by all members of the school community.
• Student participation in grade appropriate community service projects will be essential to promoting healthy organizations within the community.
• The knowledge and appreciation of unique cultural backgrounds will contribute to the development of confident individuals.
• ETAA students will be prepared for leadership positions at work and in the community.
