Platteville Elementary, in partnership with family and community, will provide a challenging, safe, and caring environment to empower each student to reach his or her full potential.



We Believe:

    • In having high expectations for everyone by providing a motivating environment

    • That positive self concept is essential to reach one’s potential

    • Everyone is worthy of respect and should be disciplined accordingly

    • That the responsibility for learning is shared

    • That creative thinking and problem solving are essential skills for life-long learners



Platteville Elementary is a school where family, community, and staff work cohesively to challenge students toward high measurable achievement in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Citizenship, and the Arts.

High expectations (80% mastery or higher) are established clearly with the full confidence that our students will achieve them. Expected behaviors and results are communicated clearly with the child. Rubrics and other standards based grading criteria are shared with children and their parents as road maps for success. Meanwhile, divergent methods that achieve desired results are praised and celebrated. Students are strongly expected at school and at home to demonstrate their personal potential.

Our school is a safe, nurturing, and collaborative environment. Visitors are encouraged but they must sign in at the front office when coming on campus. We work together to provide all resources such as supplies and technology within our means in order to reach students in their various learning styles. Many students are visual learners. Many are oral language learners. Many are written language learners. Many respond to music. Many respond to technology. Many students need material presented in a variety of ways. Our shared responsibility is doing whatever it takes to educate students for their highly technical and diverse future.

There are many unknowns in the future of our students. Problem solving skills are required and enhanced through the Arts, Technology, Physical Education, and regular opportunities for students to find their own methods to solving problems in all curricular areas. All subjects are integrated. Art lessons support concepts in the regular classroom while still expecting students to demonstrate the art standards. The same goes for Music, Technology, and Physical Education. Student strengths are discovered and nurtured in order to prepare the leaders and problem solvers of tomorrow. Creative problem solving allows for students to succeed in ways that are comfortable and enjoyable to the student. This enhances demonstration of the students’ full potential.
