Irwin provides a high quality academic environment for all children. The mission of the entire Irwin Community is to prepare our diverse population for success in a dynamic, global society through a nurturing and academically challenging environment. Our vision for our students is: Opening Minds to Lifelong Learning. Our goal is to establish and maintain a school-wide culture conducive to meeting rigorous academic standards through evidence based instruction for all students.
Irwin is a DoDEA 21st Century Jump Start School and this has allowed for extra resources and tools to implement the DoDEA standards with fidelity. Instruction at Irwin emphasizes a student-centered climate tailored to accommodate students' unique learning needs; we do this by providing and teaching students how to access and use collaborative digital resources. Teachers require students to use digital resources to create learning artifacts that incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) in Project Based Learning (PBL) units of study.
We have a strong home-school partnership with our parents and community partners. The staff is among the best in the Fort Bragg School System and is committed to the success of all students. As we guide our students through a variety of instructional approaches in their daily activities, we strive to create an environment that will encourage them to reach their highest academic potential while fostering emotional, physical, and social development.
Irwin is located in a wonderful community and because of you and your child, it will continue to be a school that exemplifies high standards and inspires academic success.
