Fletcher Hills Elementary is long steeped in a tradition of educational excellence   and outstanding achievements making our students among the finest. Here they are given the full spectrum of educational experiences and opportunities, strong curriculum and instructional strategies delivered by a talented, experienced and caring staff.

The mission of Fletcher Hills Elementary School is to build a strong academic foundation by providing an instructional program which emphasizes high standards of achievement. We are committed to providing a quality educational program which challenges all students, promotes literacy, and fosters self-esteem that will allow children to become productive, lifelong learners.

At Fletcher Hills teachers and staff team with parents to prepare the students academically and socially to be productive and successful members of our society. We want our parents to be involved in our school. When families, staff and students all work together we achieve the greatest possible results. Our PTA and volunteer force are extraordinary and help to enhance the school experience for every family and student. We encourage all families to be involved in PTA and to consider volunteering in classrooms or from home. 

We are all looking forward to a wonderful school year filled with learning, new friendships and life lessons that will stay with our students for years to come. 

I hope you will stop in and introduce yourself if we haven’t met yet. My door is always open and I welcome your input on how Fletcher Hills is serving your child well and what we can do to make their school experience even better.
