Dexter Elementary school is committed to the excellence of education through best practice and compassionate, dedicated teachers striving to help each student become independent thinkers who will learn from the past to create their own future.
We have a math and reading goal at Dexter. We want all students to improve Reading Comprehension and Math Communication. We achieve these goals by implementing reading strategies of making connections to another text they have read, something they have experienced themselves or something they have experienced in the world around them. In math, students use math vocabulary and Polya's four step method to solve problems. We are extremely pleased with the success of our students in both reading and math.
Along the same line of thought, please consider these four suggestions to help us with the success of your child.
