Our Mission is to provide an academic program that supports all of our students through collaborative planning, continuous professional development, and active teaching that emphasizes reading and mathematics in an atmosphere of shared leadership. We acknowledge individual differences by using best practices, diverse instructional strategies 
and the use of data to analyze and improve instructional practices in the classroom.


The vision of the Nightingale Elementary School is to educate all students in a positive, supportive and safe learning environment whereby students will achieve a higher level of academic performance, learn to work cooperatively, reason critically, develop a positive self-image and cultural pride and function effectively in the community as they work toward the goal of becoming independent, lifelong learners and thus contribute to the broader society.
