All About


Our Mission

John T. McCutcheon Elementary School educates the whole child through an inquiry-based educational experience that focuses on creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. McCutcheon Elementary is committed to maintaining an inclusive educational environment centered around STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and SEL (Social-Emotional Learning), which supports all students academically, socially, emotionally, and culturally. We strive to foster a caring environment through strong school, family, and community relationships. We partner with our school community and stakeholders to make decisions that are in the best interests of our students. We dedicate ourselves to meeting the individual needs of every student, who is empowered to make positive impacts in their lives, community, and the world.
