Welcome to Van Voorhis Elementary! Our dedicated staff is committed to helping every child reach his/her full academic potential, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and caring. Our goal is to provide a world class education for every student based on their individual needs and in accordance with DoDEA instructional goals and standards. The important task of educating our youth extends far beyond the confines of the school environment. It encompasses a strong commitment and involvement on the part of the school, family, and community. By working together and sharing our knowledge and experience, we can achieve the very best for our children. We know through research in education that parental involvement of any kind, through volunteer work at school, assisting with homework at home, or active participation in school organizations leads to higher achievement for students. We invite you to join us in providing the best education possible for your child.
We are committed to continuous school improvement (CSI) which involves our students, faculty, staff and our wonderful stakeholders. We are focused on an environment which is nurturing and collaborative. We use data driven results based strategies and always ready for change as it impacts the global learner.
The DoDEA mission is to "Educate, Engage, and Empower Each Student to succeed in a dynamic world". As your Principal, I look forward to continuing to work with the military, civilians and contractors to support our organization's mission as we grow and change as a community. I invite you to be a part of our continuous school improvement initiative at Van Voorhis Elementary School .
Elementary school is a wonderful time for students, parents and educators. Each day is different and we would like to assure you that we are passionate about challenging our students and are continually "Striving for Excellence" in all that we do. We look forward to meeting and working in partnership with you and your student/s!
