    School Philosophy

    Our vision for Eakin Elementary School family and community is one in which all learners, both children and adults, grow and succeed in the 21st century.  We celebrate the diversity of cultures and value individual differences. We work to support our learners and expect the very best because our students are capable and we believe in them.

    Curriculum

    Reading, math, English as a Second Language, science, social studies, health, art, music and physical education is aligned to Ohio’s Learning Standards. Students have an opportunity to use chrome books, thin client computers, Smart Boards and other technology in the classroom. (We are working towards having 1:1 computer access)  Eakin is an OSU Research Site for Literacy Collaborative in grades kindergarten - 3rd grade. Students are instructed at their level and the program is suppplemented with additional materials to support students' growth. Small group tutoring is offered to students. Students in grades 4-5 are provided instruction that is Researched based.

    Community Partnerships

    Eakin partners with Community in Schools to provide integrated student supports. Our CIS site coordinator works with volunteers, partners and the local community to provide students with the supports they need to succeed both inside and outside the classroom. Ethiopian Tewanhedo Social Services provide an after school program that supports the development of home to school connections. Buckeye Ranch partners with Eakin as we develop a strength-based, family-centered, trauma-informed, and culturally responsive systems.
