Welcome to Arbutus Elementary


Our mission is to provide a positive and effective educational environment that is student centered and focuses on individual achievement to prepare our students for college and career opportunities in a multicultural, technologically advanced, global society.


Our vision is the cultivation of a community of individuals who are life long learners who contribute to the global society in a positive manner while inspiring others to reach their potential.

As a professional learning community:

  • We will maintain a safe and orderly environment that is positive and effective.

  • We will make decisions based on student data as well as moral and ethical values.

  • We will view all students as individuals when evaluating and nurturing their potential.

  • We will communicate clear expectations that are measurable and maintain accountability to ensure that we are implementing effective instruction.

  • We will recognize the strengths and needs of the community to maximize the advancement of all stakeholders.
