Thank you for visiting the Penn-Kidder Campus K-8 School. At the Penn-Kidder Campus we serve grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade, house two intermediate unit classrooms and a pre-kindergarten program. We provide our students excellent instruction throughout the day. We also provide after-school programs that include academic tutoring, enrichment activities and sports. Our students are engaged in stimulating instruction and learning opportunities to help them develop socially, academically, and emotionally.
We provide a secure, safe climate that ensures lifelong learners in our global community. Our instruction is guided by state and district standards while at the same time allowing our staff the freedom to teach relevant topics to our students. Our assessments are ongoing and supported with district-provided testing materials that gauge what is being taught in the classrooms. Our core belief is that "All Children Can and Will Learn."
Our staff has established learning goals for the year and consistently collaborate to improve and guide their instruction of our children. We provide a nurturing, warm place that strives to make our school family oriented and a friendly place to be. We are a community committed to cultivating peace.
