Gardner Elementary School (Pre-K-4)

Gardner Elementary School will be a first experience with school for many of our Gardner students and their families. We aim for that to be a positive experience for all; one that fosters a life-long love of learning in children, while encouraging parents to be involved in their student's education through high school graduation and beyond.
