It is the mission of Trabuco Mesa Elementary School to provide a higher plateau for learning. Our vision proclaims that all students will meet or exceed rigorous grade level standards. In the classroom this vision translates into active, engaged learners, innovative practices, and research-based strategies, which ensures continuous growth and high levels of student achievement. We maintain high expectations for our students and ourselves as professionals. Our staff is committed to helping our students be college and career ready by succeeding in the 21st Century Learning Skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity. We thoroughly implement challenging Common Core practices and standards-based curriculum in our classrooms. Our professional learning communities work collaboratively using data to set goals, reflect on best teaching strategies, and monitor student learning to improve student achievement. Student engagement and a technology-rich environment, utilizing iPads and chromebooks, are a tool for learning. Teachers creatively and intentionally design and deliver engaging lessons to support all students. As technology innovates, we are committed to learning and applying it to everyday teaching experiences.
Maintaining a safe and effective learning environment is a top priority at our school. We provide a well-established character development program that promotes positive character qualities and leadership skills in all students, and we celebrate and honor academic achievement, academic grit, and exemplary behavior. We utilize a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention System to maintain a safe, nurturing, and positive learning environment. This behavior intervention system supports and encourages students to make good choices socially by being safe, respectful, and responsible.
