School Setting:

In the Summer of 2012, a cross-section of Eaton parents, administrators, and teachers came together to define Eaton's mission, vision, and guiding beliefs. We started with basic questions relating to Eaton's reason for being and its purpose. The resulting framework, shown here, provides a set of guideposts that helps us ensure that we are making decisions with our resources that make sense for the community as a whole.

Our purpose is to provide each Eaton student with a well-rounded, 21st century education that prepares him or her, regardless of background or circumstance, for success in and beyond elementary school.

Eaton Elementary School and its diverse community of life-long learners embody academic tenacity, compassion, and global citizenship.
