Tyrone Elementary SchoolPreschool - Grade 4
The Tyrone Elementary School offers programs for children preschool through fourth grade. At Tyrone Area Elementary School we set high expectations to ensure a challenging curriculum for all students. Through the MTSS Model, our teachers use ongoing assessments to guide instructional practices to identify students who need additional time and support to master skills. We differentiate or modify instruction to meet the individual needs of each student while keeping a sharp focus on the progress of the whole group.
Technological advancement is evident throughout the elementary program. Students participate in planned technology activities in preschool through fourth grade using Chrome Tablets and Chromebooks.
