Learn more about Cambridge Elementary School.

Mission

In alignment with the district''s vision, our Cambridge Elementary School staff is committed to participating in professional discussions, goal setting, planning, and programmatic implementation that leads to the success of all students. At Cambridge, we are identifying the many ways that each student, parent and staff member can contribute to sustaining a warm and caring school environment.

Academics

Students learn reading and writing through a balanced literacy program that includes phonemic awareness, phonics, guided reading, literature circles, and whole class shared reading/novels. Our writing curriculum closely aligns with the Columbia program, reaching each emergent writer. Math instruction emphasizes problem-solving strategies along with math facts and operations. In social studies and science, children receive inquiry-based instruction on broad concepts in each discipline.

More

At Cambridge Elementary School, the themes of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control (CARES) are consistently interwoven into the curricular and co-curricular activities of the school. On a daily basis, students live by and follow the principles of The Responsive Classroom, so that all members of our school community are able to work, to learn and to play together in harmony. In addition to Responsive Classroom, we provide students with a wide variety of programs, such as Peer Mediators, Safety Patrol, and Cambridge Community Cares, all of which allow students to interact with one another and with staff in order to help build a sense of community, caring, and respect for all. These programs also foster civic responsibility and important leadership qualities that serve students well in the community at-large and in their future endeavors. Cultural diversity and individual uniqueness are conveyed through student projects, activities, and assembly programs.
