Principal's Welcome

Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Childs Elementary! At Childs, teachers, administrators, staff, parents and students all contribute to crafting a learning environment that enables each individual child to reach their full potential. We strive to uphold a positive and inclusive atmosphere that ensures our students are able to learn and grow in a safe, comfortable, and caring environment. This collective commitment to supporting the whole child through high quality educational experiences has resulted in a rich tradition of academic excellence; including Childs being recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School in both 2007 and 2013.

Childs is proud to be a fully authorized International Baccalaureate School. As an IB World School, we aim to develop internationally-minded students who recognize their shared humanity while creating a more just and peaceful world. The pedagogical framework of the Primary Years Program (PYP) is rooted in inquiry, resulting in authentic experiential learning opportunities that enrich student perspectives. We encourage our students to personify the many learner profile attributes that help them become more compassionate, empathetic individuals.

By combining rigorous academic programming with best practice instructional strategies and intentional systems of support, all students are able to learn and grow at a high level. Our team of dynamic educators work tirelessly to meet the individual needs of all children. Moreover, the school experience is enhanced through numerous extra-curricular offerings; including run club, robotics club, foreign-language clubs, garden club, beginning strings and more.

Childs Elementary is a uniquely special school with a true sense of community. Our faculty and staff look forward to serving your family!
