The Lakeland Central School District accepts the challenge of preparing students for a rapidly changing world. Aligned to our District’s mission and vision, we at Van Cortlandtville Elementary School strive to promote critical thinking and high academic standards in a joyful learning community.
We understand the importance of relational, cognitive, and behavioral engagement related to our Lakeland Eight Strategies for Success. We believe that rigor and joy are not mutually exclusive– but rather, they work symbiotically. When teachers, staff and students feel safe, engaged and included in an equitable environment, they are better able to maximize their potential.
