(Grades K to 4)
The School, built in 1909, was expanded in 1969, and received an additional wing structure in 2000. The Archer Street School is a classic two-story structure that welcomes families with graceful landscaping and a bright red awning. The spacious media center, modern computer lab and high tech printing press, allow children to build literacy skills in mathematics and technology.
The Philosophy of the Archer Street School provides powerful learning experiences for authentic student learning, meaningful staff development and high quality parental and community involvement. Archer’s community of learners is committed to working together. Children are engaged in authentic learning and assessment, teaching them the values of accountability. They learn how to listen, speak and write using critical thinking skills and their unique talents.
The Theme, Language Arts, Mathematics and Technology, is the catalyst for developing an inter-disciplinary, multimedia approach to support each child’s academic development. In a safe and supportive environment that nurtures social and emotional competencies along with curriculum based instruction, the children develop high expectations for achievement. Children’s positive self-esteem and a love for learning are fostered through such programs as Book of the Month, Seasonal Read-In Celebrations, Million Minutes of Reading and the Green Light Program. Our state of the art technology – Smartboards, laptops and video-conferencing – enables us to develop interactive multi-disciplinary learning projects such as our DVD Yearbook. Family activities such as Puente, Math Family Night, Game and Dessert Night, and Dr. Seuss Read Across America help create a strong sense of community within our school.
