The West Platte Elementary School carefully considers all aspects of a child's development. We believe that children can best acquire a rich body of knowledge and the skills needed for future learning through a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and that builds upon itself year by year. It is our hope that our curriculum is an expression of our mission, which is to develop students with a healthy intellectual, physical, and emotional balance. We want our students to become lifelong learners and ultimately productive citizens in society.

We realize that the first years of a child's academic life are crucial ones in establishing a positive attitude and a disposition toward learning. We value a young child's natural desire to learn through creation and self-expression, and we strive to build upon our students' curiosity, while instilling in them a spirit of cooperation, a respect for others, and a desire to grow intellectually. Therefore, we complement the lessons with weekly participation in library, computer, music, art, and physical education classes.
