Wadsworth Elementary School’s Vision
We envision all Wadsworth Elementary School students scoring on grade level or higher in every subject. In addition,it is an expectation that every student will show a minimum of one years growth. This is an admirable goal to be sure, but not unattainable! The expertise of the highly trained, experienced faculty Wadsworth is what gives us the key to ensure the success of our students.
But as we all know, we can’t do it alone. Success in any organization requires teamwork. Educating our students requires a team with the school, parents and community all working together. The survival of public schools rests on our ability to create/develop/produce and support high achieving students armed with the tools necessary to be successful adults in the 21st century.
This requires us to keep up with the constant change! It is crucial that we teach our students a variety of effective strategies for learning. We know they will need to apply these strategies throughout the course of their lives. The children of today must be able to analyze, synthesize and evaluate the barrage of information coming at them from every direction.
Students today are natives of the digital age and most, naturally multi-task. They need to be enticed to learn with engaging but rigorous lessons. They crave the integration of technology into the lessons they learn about in every subject. As a team we must model the need to be life-long learners. Survival, for everyone, relies heavily on our ability to adapt. With this constant change we are required to learn, unlearn, re-learn, modify, adapt and create.
Teaching today has become a science as well as a challenge to engage our students. We are becoming fully ingrained in the diagnostic-prescriptive approach to teaching and learning. We have identified many highly effective methods of teaching and have a clearly define curriculum (the Sunshine State Standards).
As a team, we have all the key components, the same goals of staying focused and using expertise. It is now a matter of fine tuning and pulling everything together. We must all have the same goal, stay focused, and use our expertise.
