Media Elementary is a community-based school located in the center of historic Media Borough. The school site has a history that dates back to the nineteenth century. The current facility, fully renovated in 1994, is a successful blend of the past, present, and future.
Values embedded in our school’s culture are clear. Included are a focus on literacy, a strong sense of community, activities that support health and wellness, excellent communication between home and school, a philosophy that supports inclusion, parent engagement, environmental awareness, a challenging standards-based curriculum and outstanding support for at-risk students. As stated in our mission statement, “Honoring diversity is a community value. Respect, responsibility and high expectations are the foundation of our work.”
A positive parent and school partnership is vital for our success. We have an extremely active Parent Teacher Group that collaborates with us in a number of ways. There are numerous social and/or academic events planned for families during each school year.
Technology supports our work. SMARTBOARDS, installed in every classroom, allow us to promote academic success for every child. Information about our school is posted on our school website. To reach the Media Elementary website, go to www.rtmsd.org and click on “Select a School.”
Our talented and highly skilled staff works hard to provide a learning environment that is safe, challenging, and fun. We are fortunate to be able to maintain an excellent student-teacher ratio. Progress reports are issued three times a year and parent- teacher conferences are held twice during each school year. The Responsive Classroom model supports our school culture.
