School's focus on literacy is based on the Common Core
State Standards. Teachers develop a rigorous curriculum that supports best practices
and encourages student achievement. Students read, analyze, and discuss a variety
of literary works as a means to develop literacy skills across content areas.
Collaboration among teachers, parents, students, and other stakeholders helps
foster an environment to promote excellence. Our vision is that the graduates
of Drake Elementary School will be independent, critical thinkers who value literacy
as a continual process in all aspects of life.
