I am pleased to welcome you to the Fox Road Magnet Elementary School website. Fox Road has a strong tradition of caring, nurturing and educating children since the school was opened in 1991. In 2012, the School Board selected Fox Road to become a magnet school and to implement the International Baccalaureate Primary Year Programme. As part of our implementation, we revised our School Mission Statement to the following:
The mission of Fox Road Magnet Elementary School is to develop life-long learners, in a welcoming and challenging world class school embracing intercultural understanding, so they are well prepared for their future as knowledgeable, inquiring, caring, and contributing citizens committed to creating a better world.
At Fox Road, we take very seriously our responsibility to provide an engaging, nurturing and meaningful educational experience for our students and recognize that the best learning environment is where everyone sees themselves as a learner. Towards this end, one of the key ways that we will help our students recognize what it takes to be a lifelong learner is the IB Learner Profile. By teaching our students to be inquirers; knowledgeable; thinkers; communicators; principled; open-minded; caring; risk-takers; balanced; and reflective, we will be providing them an understanding of how to be successful in their lives and to take responsibility for their own learning.
There is a lot of information about Fox Road and our school, as well as, additional resources on our website. If we can answer any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.Thank You.
Beginning in 2014, test score reports will include new information to show parents and teachers where students excel and where they may need extra help.
