First St. has a long tradition of support and community connection. Our mission and vision of meeting individual student needs and forming positive connections and meaningful relationships continues to be our top priority! We want students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and productive and honorable members of society. Our teachers and staff work hard to move all students forward in meeting their goals.
First Street Elementary School hosts a self-contained 2/3 combination class for Gifted and Talented Education and High Achievers, another for 4th grade and one for 5th grade students, together comprising the Elementary Academy. Fifth grade students graduating from the Elementary Academy Program typically enroll in the Honors Academy on the Glen Edwards campus.
First Street School serves a highly diverse population. While a significant portion of the students are English Language Learners, equally significant is the annual growth and progress made by both our English speaking and bilingual students. A highly qualified and fully credentialed staff brings this school an exciting learning atmosphere, with opportunities for students to participate in music and art. Students may attend Homework Club, or participate in Band or Choir after school.
