Welcome to Radburn School!
Welcome to the Radburn Elementary School website. I am honored to be principal at Radburn working with amazing students, families, and a wonderful group of dedicated professionals. Our priority is to provide a high quality education for every student, every day. At Radburn our goal is to encourage a lifelong desire for the enjoyment of learning as well as develop well rounded, productive members of society.
Radburn Elementary School was built in the late 1920's as the first planned community in the United States. It was known as the "Town for the Motor Age." Architects and planners Clarence Stein and Henry Wright wished to create a community that was self sufficient and separated pedestrians from cars. In Radburn's 23 acres of parks and pathways, families can walk through the myriad of gardens and paths to any area in Radburn.
Radburn Elementary School serves approximately 457 children in our Kindergarten through fifth grade program. Our staff works closely in collaborative teams to provide a focused program of instruction. Radburn staff work diligently to provide instruction for students at their success level, differentiating instruction so that all students are challenged and feel success. At Radburn Elementary School, we provide a safe, orderly, respectful environment that promotes high levels of student engagement and performance. We honor the unique strengths, talents, and diversity of each of our students and dedicate our efforts to help them experience individual success.
We value the partnership with our parents and our community. We are fortunate to have an active and supportive PTA. The PTA offers many educational enrichment supports that provide opportunities and experiences for students that otherwise would not exist. The PTA allows parents multiple opportunities to become involved in different activities that support our students and school.
We hope you will take some time to explore our website to learn more about the opportunities that exist at Radburn.
