Welcome to Elsmere Elementary


Elsmere Lion MascotOur theme is PRIDE: Personal Best, Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Determination and Enthusiasm, which guides us each day in our work and play. As we immerse ourselves in hands on curriculum and valuable learning, we focus on the importance of applying our skills in responsible ways. Elsmere School seeks to provide a safe place for children to aspire to the highest academic standards. We encourage our students to be all they can be at school and beyond, and we celebrate their successes. Our parents and staff have a strong partnership focused on providing the best environment for the children.

We call Elsmere School “a place to love and grow.”

Mission Statement

The mission of Elsmere School is to provide an atmosphere of tolerance and acceptance where all children are treated equally, yet recognized for their special qualities, abilities, and talents. In this atmosphere, teaching and learning, self-esteem and self-discipline, confidence and caring, work hand-in-hand to provide a place where children can truly "love and grow."
