Who we are

Welcome to Andrew Avenue Elementary School!

A Great Place to Be!

The Crew at Andrew Avenue School is very proud of our students and how we bring to life The Vision of the Graduate. The Vision of the Graduate guides all that we do from educational programming to our Positive Behavior Supports System. You will find a detailed description of the Vision of the Graduate on the following two pages. We are dedicated to partnering with you as we strive for excellence. Together, we can inspire all of our children to achieve.

We welcome your interest and concern and urge you to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about the educational program or your child’s progress.
