Principal’s Message

Welcome to Stride Avenue Community School. At Stride, we are very proud of the accomplishments of our students, the work of our staff, and the support of our community. I hope that this website can be a useful reference for you throughout the year and you will experience the joy that comes with belonging to a truly supportive community.

At Stride, we believe in academic excellence and the pursuit of knowledge, skills and developing a positive attitude that leads to life-long learning. We offer each child a balanced program that encompasses all aspects of student learning. We implement varied strategies to address student needs, as we believe that learning is both an individual and a social process that requires active participation and a safe and caring enfironment. We believe that staff, students, parents, and the greater school community have a role and responsibility in the learning process.

As we strive to achieve our goals, we will assist our students to become positive citizens with the necessary tools for an ever-changing society.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions for our school. You are always welcome at Stride. We wish to work closely with all members of our community to ensure ongoing improvements at Stride Avenue Community School.
