Ellington students will be prepared to enter a rapidly changing and complex world with strong academic skills, breadth of knowledge, depth of understanding, commitment to others, and the attitudes necessary to become productive, contributing citizens.
Keeping children as the focus of our endeavors, all members of the Ellington School System will ensure that students can achieve our vision by:
Focusing resources to create a well-maintained infrastructure that provides each student with a safe and orderly environment as well as access to technology and other tools, which support and enrich the learning process.
Maintaining high standards for the traditional components of a basic education and integrating research based, innovative programs that challenge and encourage students to reach their individual potentials and prepare them for productive lives and responsible citizenship.
Encouraging and developing a strong bond among students, faculty, staff, parents and community with each individual accepting the responsibility for his/her role in the learning process.
Developing and sustaining an academic environment that fosters student development and enhances relationships with others in the school, workplace and community by expecting, independent thought, effective communication, tolerance, and the valuing of diversity.
