School Summary

Groveton Elementary School serves the instructional needs of a culturally diverse community.  It enjoys a rich history in which teachers and support staff are dedicated to maintaining a challenging learning environment for all students.

Teachers place priority on diagnosing student needs, assessing the strongest course of instructional action, and developing a working partnership with each child's parents or guardians. Groveton students receive Title I assistance and special needs staffing. Instructional staff members benefit from ongoing training and instructional support.

At Groveton, we believe that the social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum. Using the Responsive Classroom approach, students begin the day with a Morning Meeting which is a time for students to connect with each other, share, have fun and prepare for the academic tasks of the day. We respond to misbehavior with logical consequences and work to meet the developmental needs of each child.  

The Parent-Teacher Association, composed of parents and teachers, works cooperatively toward the goal of meeting each child's academic needs. A growing active parent volunteer program provides daily enrichment to add to teachers' endeavors. Groveton Elementary is truly a community school!
