About

Tamarac Elementary School teachers focus to reach students where they are and to help them achieve their highest potential, both academically and socially. Students know that the teachers and other staff members have high expectations for them, and they strive to meet them. Mathematic programs take a balanced approach, focusing on what students need to know, and the processes and skills necessary to reason, solve problems, and think critically. The use of technology applications will deepen student engagement and improve student achievement by enabling them to access and analyze information, solve problems, collaborate with others, and communicate their thoughts and ideas. Students receive instruction in art, music, physical education, library skills and technology from teachers who are specialists in each area. Dedicated caring staff of teachers makes it their personal responsibility to help every student realize their potential to learn. Teachers offer differentiated lessons and high interest activities in an effort to meet every student’s needs.
