Description




East Garner Elementary School's staff and parents envision a school where: the environment is safe, inviting, and caring to all, high achievement is a priority, all stakeholders work collaboratively to build a positive and challenging learning environment, staff and students are empowered to take risks and be responsible for their own learning, and diversity as well as unique qualities of all are respected, encouraged, and celebrated. It is our mission to work as a community that will educate all students to become responsible and productive citizens in a changing world.

At East Garner Elementary we celebrate our academic performance and our outstanding character education program. Since opening its doors in 2007, we have maintained our focus on the implementation of researched based instructional practices to maximize learning. As a result, our school has been recognized for achieving High Growth and for being a School of Progress for the last three years. In 2011 we were also recognized by the Center for Education Policy Research, Harvard University Study, for growth in student achievement in math and reading. East Garner Elementary maintains a positive and nurturing school climate by implementing the nationally recognized behavior management program known as Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. Incorporating the tenets of the program on a consistent basis earned our school the Green Ribbon award in 2009 and 2010. To encourage our students to demonstrate good character and the expected behavior, they are coached to apply the acronym MAPS on a daily basis. When you visit our school you will see our East Garner Explorers following their MAPS in every aspect of the school setting:

*M - Make smart choices
*A - Always do your best
*P - Practice self-control
*S - Show respect
East Garner Elementary operates on the year-round calendar. Students at the year-round schools are divided into four groups, called tracks, with each track having its own calendar. In a year-round elementary school, the traditional 180-day school year is divided into nine-week quarters with a three week break at the end of each quarter. Students are in school the same number of days as their counterparts in traditional schools; the days are simply redistributed throughout the year. The reorganized schedule is called a 45/15 - 45 days in school, 15 days off.

Schedules are staggered so that, at any given time, three tracks are in school and one is on break. These staggered schedules make it possible for the school to serve up to thirty-three percent more students than its intended capacity.

All year-round schools offer a traditional curriculum. A traditional curriculum offers students high quality instruction, opportunities for advanced studies, creative exploration and extra-curricular activities in a nurturing educational setting.

Year-round schools provide a more continuous learning process. Since students do not have long summer vacations, major reviewing in the fall is eliminated. Students and teachers are more energized throughout the year due to regular breaks. The three-week breaks provide frequent enrichment and remedial opportunities for students during the year.






Curriculum: Traditional

Traditional curriculum schools offer students high quality instruction, opportunities for advanced studies, creative exploration and extra-curricular activities in a nurturing educational setting. Some of the highest-performing schools in Wake County are traditional curriculum schools.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Southeast Transportation Office.
