Dear Gompers Families,
Welcome to Samuel Gompers Elementary School!
Our school is a great place to be for many reasons. We are a small neighborhood school with an enrollment of approximately 300 students which makes it a fairly unique experience for our students in that every staff member gets to know all the children fairly quickly. It truly is a close family experience for staff and children, alike. I am honored to be a part of this wonderful school community. Our curriculum is rigorous and teacher teams work together to plan using the Common Core State Standards. Through these standards, we are charged with the responsibility of ensuring that each child is prepared for college, career, and the community by the time he/she completes high school. Our goal is to teach students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. We will give the children the tools to be thoughtful, responsible citizens who will be ready to take their place in the world.
