Our Mission

Union Avenue Elementary's Vision is to build a supportive, community-oriented educational program with the ultimate goal of empowering students to become independent, critical thinkers, and lifelong learners who are able to succeed in our diverse and changing society.
Our Mission. We believe that every child can learn. Our mission is to provide a safe environment where students can explore through sense-making, cognitively guided instruction, and project-based learning. We encourage them to share their stories and the connections that make in the classroom with their life experiences.
