Welcome to Ada Elementary!

Welcome to Ada Elementary, a wonderful place in which to learn, gain new experiences, and make friends. We are known for our culture…a culture that encourages and recognizes academic growth, promotes social responsibility, and warmly welcomes all students and families. We believe that all students can learn. Ada’s experienced staff meets collaboratively every month to review student achievement to ensure continuous improvement in learning. Our classroom instruction is interactive, relevant, and engaging. Technology is integrated into lessons that are rich in content and differentiated for learners. Students learn the importance and responsibility of caring for others. Our community partnerships, our involved parents, and the generous support of our active PTO enrich the instructional and learning experiences of our children.
