Maple Avenue School & Home Compact


            At Maple Avenue Elementary School, we believe that a joint commitment between school and home is an essential element for student success.  The school and parents work cooperatively to provide for the successful education of the children.  Our school mission is to have all students meet or exceed New York State standards in English Language Arts, math, science and social studies by the end of 5th grade and be ready to succeed in middle school.  To that end,



  • to set high standards that provide quality curriculum and instruction, including Character Education.
  • to provide a safe and orderly environment.
  • to provide frequent reports to parent on their children’s progress and reasonable access to staff.
  • to provide opportunities in which parents can volunteer and participate in their children’s education through involvement in the Parent Education Group (PEG), the School Quality Council (SQC), and the America’s Choice program.
