School Description

Park Avenue Enhanced Options Elementary is proud to be one of the district’s School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) schools. Being a SWPBS school means we place positive behavior and behavioral expectations at the center of everything we do. Displayed prominently across the school are our SWPBS guidelines: Be respectful; Be responsible; Be ready; and Be safe. 

The SWPBS system is not just a display of expectations. Students are actively engaged with these guidelines in learning activities. The common language of expectations allows everyone in the school to communicate clearly and reinforce the expectations. Through this system, students develop ownership of their own school experience.

In addition to Park Avenue’s emphasis on positive behavior, our enhanced option school boasts a number of other features, including an extended school day, breakfast in the classroom, blended learning opportunities and Encore, the district’s gifted learning program.
