About Us

Gardner offers a PreK-5 curriculum of English/language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, and places a heavy focus on cross-curricular learning. Teachers work collaboratively using innovative, interactive instruction to build a strong knowledge base while also providing students with the means to meet or surpass the Common Core State Standards. Gardner has also added the scientific research-based school reform, Success For All Reading Program, to its curriculum.
