Iveland Elementary School's mission, through combined effort of staff, parents, students, and community, seeks to create an enthusiastic yet challenging learning environment that establishes high expectations through culturally responsive instruction with technological components that accommodates the learning styles of our students. We believe learning is maximized when it takes place in an orderly and safe environment enriched with support, encouragement and assistance. We aim for an atmosphere of cooperation, with respect for individual differences and the Ritenour School District values.We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in developing students who are confident and creative builders of their future.
The vision of Iveland Elementary School is to provide students with a positive, caring, and educationally stimulating environment where children recognize and achieve their fullest potential. We work to accomplish this vision through the development of a partnership with parents so that students can fulfill their personal/individual goals in life in addition to them becoming productive contributors to society. Overall, it is the common aim for everything we do as teachers and staff of the Iveland Elementary School from involving and working with parents, developing relationships with students, preparing lessons, incorporating technology, implementing culturally relevant instructional practices, working with all students, recruiting new staff members, and setting high expectations to improve the educational opportunities and achievement levels for all students.
