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
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.
