Tyrone Elementary School
    Preschool - Grade 4
    The Tyrone Elementary school offers programs for children preschool through fourth grade.  At Tyrone Area Elementary School, our motto -- "educate all students to support high levels of academic achievement" -- transcend all aspects of our operation.  We truly believe that all children can learn, and we make it our responsibility to ensure all students learn at high levels.  The elementary staff sets high expectations to ensure a challenging curriculum for all students.  Through the Rtll Model, the teacher uses ongoing assessments to guide instructional practices and to identify students who need additional time and support to master skills.  They differentiate or modify instruction to meet the individual needs of each student while keeping a sharp focus on the progress of the whole group.
