Serene Hills Elementary (SHE) strives to create a positive learning environment geared to meet the needs of students, teachers, and the community. Students are expected to gain self-esteem, problem solving skills and leadership qualities, and to develop a team player attitude as they acquire a life-long desire to learn. Teachers, school staff, parents and community encourage students to meet high expectations for learning and behavior.
Language arts, reading, writing, math, science and social studies are integrated through a unit approach. Social skills and character education, including behavioral expectations, are taught daily. Students are expected to make good decisions for their learning and behavior based on what they are taught. A reading support specialist is available to offer help as needed. In the library, students learn to enjoy literature, use the library and develop research skills.
On a rotating basis, the campus offers art, music, physical education and computer classes. In addition, Serene Hills Elementary offers the following support programs: Resource, Inclusion, S.A.I.L. (Student Assistance in Learning) Speech, Special Education, Discovery (Gifted and Talented Program), counseling, health services, after-school extended care, tutorials (Grades 2-5) and community education classes.
