Our elementary schools offer a comprehensive curriculum, aligned with current state standards. Our teaching integrates learning targets to support cognitive/intellectual, social, emotional and creative development in our students. 

Our elementary schools also focus on our district climate goal, which states, 

"All students will experience a positive, safe, and welcoming environment, where both students and adults respect and value one another." 

The climate goal is supported each and every day by strategic areas of focus, to help all students learn and use effective skills and strategies that empower them to successfully interact with peers and adults. 

The school environment promotes mutally respectful and supportive interactions between adults and students, as well as adults to adults. and students to students. 

Hoover garden The Mission and Vision Statements developed by the Elementary Principals of Livonia Public Schools: 

"As advocates for children, elementary administrators lead, support, and challenge ourselves in a culture where learning is the core of everything we do."

"As a team of elementary administrators, our vision embodies the will of our group to serve the children with whom we are  entrusted." 

"The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference."
