School Improvement Summary
At Ohio Avenue Elementary School, we are focused on the educational success of every child. The School improvement Summary link above leads you to our School Improvement Plan that lists strategies for improving student success and ways parents and the community can get involved in the process.
Academic Brief

We work to attain our mission by addressing the whole child through the following tenets:
ü Healthy: Each student enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle.
ü Safe: Each student learns in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults.
ü Engaged: Each student is actively engaged in learning and is connected to the school and broader community.
ü Supported: Each student has access to personalized learning and is supported by qualified, caring adults.
ü Challenged: Each student is challenged academically and prepared for success in college or further study and for employment and participation in a global environment.
