Riley Upper Elementary School Vision, Mission Statement and Beliefs

Vision Statement

We envision that Riley Upper Elementary will be a safe environment in which our students will learn.  Collaboratively, the Riley staff, parents, and community will work to create a positive and productive learning climate for all.  Students will be encouraged and taught to problem solve and make decisions that benefit themselves and others.  Student achievement will be assessed continually to monitor progress and drive instruction.  Teachers and students will be held accountable to high standards, not only academically, but in conduct as well.  Riley Upper Elementary students will be encouraged to be responsible, respectful, self-disciplined members of society.

  • In high expectations
