About the School
Welcome to Theodore Judah Elementary
Our mission at Theodore Judah Elementary School is to promote confidence and responsibility in our students through an enriched and engaging approach to teaching the core curriculum. The staff works together with our community partners to create an environment where people feel valued and safe so that each student can develop the skills to access core curriculum and to meet grade level standards. Our emphasis on problem solving, critical thinking, and strong communications skills and appreciation for diversity provides all of our students an avenue for success in the 21st century.
The Theodore Judah family includes staff, students, parents, community and alumni, all of whom are proud of their traditions and commitment to educational excellence. Theodore Judah School was a Public Works Association project under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and, as such, the school has a place on the United States Register of Historical Buildings. Its staff and supporters are proud of its 70+ years record of quality educational programs for boys and girls.
A strong community-school-parent partnership supports the ethnically-rich population providing students with a varied and multicultural direction to working with others. An important component of the school’s success is a strong emphasis on literacy accros the disciplines. Many activities throughout the year support the teachers’ efforts to create literacy in every student.
Our special day students and our gifted and talented students integrate into other classrooms whenever it is appropriate, allowing each of us to appreciate the importance working together and of differences. It increases the creative levels students reach and the life skills they develop as they resolve the daily issues that challenge us.
