About Us

At all Torrington elementary schools, we believe that all children come to school with natural curiosity, creativity, and potential.  Our responsibility, as educators, is to provide experiences which support children to be readers, thinkers, problem-solvers and effective communicators with an understanding of personal and social responsibility. 

We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all our students.  Families are primary caregivers and educators of young children that are critical partners in all learning.  Working together, we can empower children with the creative, intellectual and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically and emotionally successful, responsible citizens.

We greet the whole child each and every day, making sure that along with academics, we incorporate movement, mindfulness and fun. Physical activity and fitness is celebrated with events such as Jump Rope for Heart, A.C.E.S. and a yearlong program that culminates in the Kids Marathon! Thanks to the efforts of our PTO, we have been able to plan field trips and enrichment activities, along with, “fun” events such as Family Bingo Nights and Field Day. 

This past year, thanks to the generous support of our community partners, we provided extended learning activities presented by the Torrington Fire Department, Brooker Memorial, New England Air Museum, Nutmeg Symphony Orchestra, Susan B Anthony, Torrington Police Department, local business leaders (Junior Achievement) and ASAP (After School Arts Program).  

We welcome you to visit, to learn along with us, to share your talents, interests, hobbies, or careers, and to join in our PTO activities.  We welcome you to the Torrington family of learners!
