Slavens School radiates with a spirit of warmth, discipline, humor and excellence. We have a challenging academic program that supports every child as a learner of worth and dignity. We strive to personalize teaching to ensure that all students learn to read critically, write effectively, speak articulately, and think logically and creatively in all disciplines including mathematics, the sciences and social studies. We offer vigorous physical education, community service opportunities and the lively pursuit of the arts. All of this provides a profound and well-balanced education for each and every student.- Learn More
Slavens K-8 School is a Leader In Me school that takes the development of the whole child seriously. We believe that a strong educational foundation is attained by providing a thoughtful and nurturing environment where students feel safe and cared for. We have a Code of Conduct that begins, “At Slavens, we take the high road…” and ends with “… even when no one is watching” which signifies our central theme: students are responsible for their own behavior and learning and our job as adults is to support them in their development. Our goal is to grow compassionate, ethical and productive students who are engaged and challenged in their learning.
