Welcome to Countryside Elementary School!
Countryside School is an inclusive learning community for students from kindergarten through fifth grade with an enrollment of 414 students. Our work at Countryside is inspired by our core values: Respect, Cooperation, Responsibility and Learning. Our core values guide how we learn, work and play together. Our population is diverse and we welcome families from across the world. Our diversity is cultural, ethnic, and linguistic, which makes Countryside a wonderful place to learn and work. Nearly 40% of our students go home to speak another language and our English Language Learner Program currently supports 70 children. We also have a large inclusion program, including the citywide ABA program. Our unique community loves to learn. This passion for learning is not limited to just students. It includes faculty members and families. We believe in strong family partnerships, a safe setting for all to learn and succeed, a supportive environment for educators to further their professional development and hallways filled with a buzz of excitement.
We hope that you will find this site helpful with important information about Countryside. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
