Exemplary Programs
We are Elbert-Palmer Elementary School, Home of the Peacocks! Elbert-Palmer offers many programs to build and strengthen our students' abilities to learn. Our music program consists of instrumental band, strings and our popular drum line, which participates in many community and school events. Enrichment groups acquired through our partnership with Children and Families First/Eastside Community Schools expand our students’ learning through the arts and sciences and promotes family involvement. Extra support is provided for reading and mathematics during intervention blocks. An Advanced Academics Program allows students to enhance their learning in their areas of strength. We are supported by counseling services, a Family Crisis Therapist and numerous community groups. In recent years, we received numerous awards for academic achievement, academic excellence and honor roll. Our scholars and staff work very hard to meet and exceed rigorous standards.
