Our Beliefs

  • We believe the purpose of school is to lead students to reason well, desire knowledge, apply learning to new situations, and accept responsibility for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

    We believe all children have the ability to learn more when immersed in a highly engaged environment that values individual growth, daily success, and positive relationships.

    We believe the focus of school is to design purposeful, engaging work and to provide relevant experiences that promote success for each student.

    We believe that school personnel must form collaborative partnerships with parents and the community to share responsibility for providing students a safe, supportive environment where they can focus on quality work.

    We believe in providing employees with encouragement, time, resources, and professional development to meet high expectations for continuous improvement.

From a Student's Perspective

    "Larne is a place where education and fun are combined. The teachers and staff encourage the students to do their best and to never give up. Larne makes me feel excited, creative, and happy. I have so many fun memories from Larne!" 
    Christian Ruth (5th grader)
    "I like Larne Elementary because they have teachers that don't give up on you. You can also make good friends easily. They have nice principals and assistant principals that say "hey" to you in the hallways and always make you feel comfortable."
    Ella Glen Baker (3rd Grader)
    “Larne Elementary has really nice and great teachers. I like Club Larne, Larnefest, going to P.E. and all the activities. My most favorite thing about Larne is Math.”
