Elkhorn Mission Statement

Elkhorn Mission Statement

To nurture the intellectual, physical, and emotional capabilities of each child is the intent of Elkhorn School.  Our school is a community encouraging independent thinkers who positively promote the value and dignity of all our members.  Part of Elkhorn's staff philosophy is to model our expectations, and to communicate regularly with parents and students regarding students' academic progress and behavior.  In order to implement our vision, the following experiences will be offered to Elkhorn students:
