Our Mission

Bancroft Elementary provides all students with an excellent academic foundation as creative and critical thinkers who are empowered to act responsibly with respect for self, community, and the world.

Bancroft Fosters:

• A growth mindset. Students grow in their learning by building confidence to take risks and make mistakes because they are in a safe and supportive environment.

• A commitment to the PYP action cycle. Students and staff are encouraged to reflect, choose, and act.

• A community of learners. We value collaboration, culture, equity, and social interaction between staff and students.

• An environment where learning is active. Students are engaged in authentic inquiry based, hands-on learning.

Belief Statements:

• We believe ALL children can learn!

• We believe that family involvement is critical in the development of the student.

• We believe diversity is a strength in our community.

• We believe that with every right comes responsibility.

• We believe shared decision-making and collaboration improve the educational process.

• We believe high expectations increase individual student achievement.

• We believe students learn best when they have opportunities for inquiry-based learning.
