Focus School

Our school qualifies again this year for school-wide Title I Funding and services. Our Title I plan allows us to employ tutors that help serve students in grades K-5. These tutors will be assisting with Direct Instruction, Guided Reading, and interventions. Our Title I Funds are also used to employ three lead teachers, three character coaches, three interventionists, and to provide staff development training, and sponsor parent involvement activities. In addition, as a parent of a student in a Title I school, you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's teacher. We are recognized as a focus school and are working to close the achievement gap among student subgroups.

Mission Statement

Weddington Hills Elementary will value, teach, and empower each student in a culture of educational excellence and respect in order to produce globally competitive lifelong learners who can be successful anywhere in the world.

Vision Statement

*To produce globally competitive lifelong learners through rigorous and relevant curriculum taught by highly prepared visionary leaders who recognize the importance of engaging a diverse body of learners.
