Elementary School Learning
Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs)
Our ESLRs correlate with our goals for developing self-motivated,
competent, lifelong learners. Our ESLRs are a pivotal part of our
instructional program, a credo describing the cusp between individual
and collective responsibility. Teachers incorporate these elements into
all subject areas, considering, for example:
- how artists communicate effectively,
- how the formulation of clear questions clarifies learning in science,
- how daily individual environmental choices shape local and global patterns,
- how to take responsibility for the quality of one’s interactions with peers, and
- how perseverance can lead to mastery of multiplication facts.

- for oneself,
- for teachers,
- for school materials,
- for the school site,
- for one’s family and community,
- about the environment, living beings, and the earth’s limited resources.
for one’s actions,
for one’s words,
for one’s learning,
for one another,
for one’s healthy body and mind.
when problems cannot be solved readily,
when faced with criticism and disappointment,
to work through struggles and setbacks,
by attempting trials: examining errors, trying harder, differently, and then trying again.
