Welcome to Traverse Mountain

Thank you for visiting our website and discovering why our students have the opportunity to be a part of one of the best educational experiences around.  Our staff is committed to providing a nurturing and safe environment where students can be involved in the discovery of their full potential. Following is our mission, vision, values and goals:


The purpose of Traverse Mountain Elementary is to create prepared, respectful, contributing citizens of society.


United as a team we will LEAD:  Learn, Encourage, Achieve, and Dream.


We are committed to making all who enter feel safe and accepted.

We are committed to communicating openly and consistently with parent partners, students and colleagues.

We believe in showing mutual respect and value to our school community based on the 6 C’s (Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking, Character, Citizenship, Communication).


Using our key collective commitments, we will create common assessments that align with our grade-level goals.  We will use the data to improve our teaching practices to ensure that our students are receiving our best efforts each day.  We will treat all who enter our school with respect through our conversations and practice.

I invite you to visit our campus and experience for yourself the engaging environment we operate under, and participate in, with our students and their families.

Kindest Regards,

Ilene Strong, Principal
