Welcome to International Elementary School
Welcome to International Elementary School, the newest member of the Prospect Schools family. Our program is built on the belief that students learn best when when their voices are heard. Our students’ collaboration with their classmates is integral to the lesson, and our teachers use data from each lesson to best meet student needs. We also believe in a well-rounded program for all students and offer four different enrichment opportunities (Spanish, music, art, and movement) at least twice a week to all students, and science to all students three times a week.
Since our founding in 2014, our school has worked hard to create a community built upon Responsive Classroom principles for safe and joyful environments where students can take risks and grow and develop as learners. We also think a lot about how to help our students become leaders, both now and in the future. Above all, we aim in all that we do to make school a place of wonder and discovery for our students. To set up our students for future success in and outside of our school walls, we must always ensure that our teaching, our schooling, and all that we do is in support of cultivating a deep love of learning in each student who comes through our doors.
I am so proud to be the leader of International Elementary School and a parent and resident of District 13. I’m also thrilled to join the Prospect Schools community, where excellent educators and leaders have been building incredible, successful schools for 13 years. I look forward to welcoming you into our school community!
Principal, International Elementary School
