DESCRIPTION PROVIDED BY THE SCHOOL BUILDING
Pershing Elementary School serves over 259 students in Grades 4-5. Small classes, averaging 20 students per room, allow teachers to individualize and target instruction for each child. A balanced curriculum is delivered to ALL students. A variety of programs and support services are available including: ELL Newcomer, speech therapy, inclusion, special education, music, band, and counseling. Working with parents, we provide educational opportunities that reflect the needs of every student. Parents may have their child participate in after-school programs, Lexington Academy or after school tutoring, to extend learning opportunities. We utilize a Response to Intervention model to identify and monitor children with learning delays and plan interventions to meet their needs. Teachers are involved in Professional Learning Communities to review classroom assessments and plan lessons to improve learning outcomes for our children.
