The Auburn School Department is comprised of six elementary schools, one middle school and one high school serving 3600 students. Our school district vision states "Every Auburn student is expertly prepared to be successful in a world that is yet to be fully imagined. Our students acquire fundamental knowledge and skills, and apply these creatively to solve every day problems at school, home, work, and in the community." We are committed to hiring the most dedicated staff that embraces the belief that all students are able to learn at high standards. We are embarking on a journey to change the delivery of education from a credit-based system to a proficiency-based model, which ensures learning, rather than seat time. We believe our delivery of instruction needs to be based on best practices with the ability to customize learning to each individual learner. It is the expectation that technology be an integral tool in the classroom and the use of formative assessment to establish precision teaching. We are devoted to providing on-going professional development for professional growth believing that we are a community of learners. Consistently our staff and students are recognized for innovation and achievement.
