Instructional Practices

  • The Brainerd Elementary School Community, through the commitment of dedicated staff and supportive parents, ensures that all students receive a preeminent education.  Fostered in our children is the ability to be critical and creative thinkers, responsible citizens and life-long learners.  Through the use of solidly tested research principles, an infusion of technology, collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking, educators can build students who are master problem solvers, creative thinkers, have the ability to acknowledge multiple perspectives, and respect diversity. In doing this,  Brainerd Elementary School will be able to celebrate the fact that it has prepared the students of Mount Holly for a world that continues to grow increasingly complex and interconnected.
