Vision Statement/Philosophy
Our Vision Statement
All students will achieve their highest potential as a result of the experiences that are provided by a team of highly qualified professionals in a positive, caring, healthy and safe learning environment.


Our Philosophy
We at Crawfordville Elementary School believe all of life is a continuous process of education, formal and informal.

We believe the curriculum must provide for the maximum development of each student’s thinking and reasoning potential as well as the acquisition of fundamental skills.

We believe students are unique in aptitude, stages of maturation, personality, physical and perceptual development. For these reasons, a variety of instructional materials, teaching methods, and learning experiences will be used to create a learning environment to help students develop healthy self-concepts through experiencing success in accordance with their abilities and interests.

We believe student learning is enhanced by encouraging wellness through proper nutrition, lifelong fitness, and self-care skills.

We believe students must be prepared to live in a rapidly-changing technological world and that they need to develop the critical thinking skills which will enable them to perform under new and unfamiliar circumstances.

We believe citizenship in a democratic society involves the assumption of duties and responsibilities in that society as well as an awareness and appreciation of our diverse background, traditions, and cultural heritage.

We believe in the continual updating and strengthening of staff members’ knowledge and skills in subject areas as well as human relationships and educational theory.

We believe an effective program of education includes constructive participation and open communication between the school, parents, and the community.

We believe in the continual measurement and evaluation of all programs for effectiveness and suitability within the framework of the total curriculum.

We believe student learning is enriched through participation in the arts.

We believe it is the purpose of Crawfordville Elementary School to provide a positive and diverse learning environment commensurate with this philosophy.
