Our Vision and Mission
The vision of Hamilton Disston Elementary School is to produce high-functioning, well-rounded individuals that make significant contributions to society.
Disston Elementary School’s mission is to provide all children in grades K-8 the educational opportunity, reinforcement, and enrichment resources to reach proficient and above levels in reading, math, and all other subject areas. We pride our success in providing our students with highly qualified educators that are specifically recruited according to educational background, experience, and area of certification through site-based selection to address the needs of our students. We believe that a positive and caring atmosphere helps provide students with the self-confidence necessary to achieve in all academic areas as well as in the community. We strive to create an environment where each child is responsible for his/her work and actions.
This will help provide each student at Disston Elementary with the necessary skills to enable them to embark on their future with pride and determination in addition to becoming a model for their communities. Also, our expectation is to afford students the ability to achieve success and serve as a positive representative of our efforts in future school placements and other encounters.
