Erie Elementary Charter School is born from Erie Neighborhood House, a comprehensive social service agency that promotes a just and inclusive society. Erie Elementary embodies the vision of providing families choice in schools where students can receive a nurturing, caring environment while getting a great K-8 education.
Erie fosters the habits of Heart, Mind and Work. We build Spanish proficiency and open doors to multicultural competence. Our responsive environment and engaging curriculum empower, educate and elevate students to confidently enter a path of higher education and participate in a diverse global society.
We envision empowered students that cultivate character, connect to culture, pursue education and contribute to their community in order to thrive in a diverse global society.
The Habits of Hearth, Mind, and Work are woven throughout our curriculum and our community culture. We reflect the Habits of Heart, Mind & Work in our personal character and professional actions with children, parents, co-workers, and the community.
Ideal candidates have experience working in urban communities and a passion for education equity. We use the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching and discipline that focuses on engaging academics, positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness.
