About Us

Our Vision

A.K. McClure’s vision is to instill in children a lifelong love of learning so that they will become contributing and competitive members of our global society. We must work to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and to perform at the proficient and advanced level of work. Our school will provide consistent academic instruction and monitoring of that instruction so that students can learn while in a safe learning environment.  McClure will prepare students to be academically successful through high expectations, data driven instruction, and the belief that all students can learn.  Our expectation is that parents, students, teachers, administrators and the community will understand and support our vision and goals.

Our Mission

The mission of Alexander K. McClure Elementary School is to create an educational and nurturing environment that fosters academic and social achievement, collaborative learners, and future leaders. We embrace diversities and unique learning styles and enable children to become lifelong learners and productive members of society through the use of critical thinking, problem solving, and real life application.
