Our Mission at Bert Ambrose elementary is to nurture and celebrate lifelong learning and social responsibility. Our school motto is to be RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL, AND RESOURCEFUL, EVERYDAY! (The three R’s)

Our school is totally committed to the principles of learning, and being a child centered school, with a focus on collaborative planning. We have an active Parent Advisory Committee and a very supportive parent community. This year our school will be focusing on three major goals, which are as follows:

1.) To improve access and improve student, staff and parental knowledge, sequential skills & attitudes related to the Information Technology Curriculum.

2.) To increase student’s ability to analyze critically, solve problems, and make decisions in the key curricular areas with a focus in Reading.

3.) To develop the school’s focus on social responsibility to ensure a safe learning environment.
