School Mission

La Colima School is a tight-knit community of students, teachers, parents, and support staff members with a common interest- developing the best child-centered learning environment in which students grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

At La Colima School, we believe…
  • Education is a partnership between the school and family,
  • A quality educational program must be accessible to all children,
  • All children can make progress toward meeting the District and State standards,
  • Learning best takes place in an atmosphere of mutual respect and safety, and
  • Children must be instilled with a love of learning in order to gain a true sense of self-worth and develop into caring and productive adults.
The mission of La Colima School is to work in partnership with parents and the community to create a child-centered learning environment in which children:
  • Grow academically,
  • Develop 21st century skills,
  • Develop an effective work ethic,
  • Build self-esteem,
  • Develop self-discipline,
  • Become citizens of strong character,
  • Work cooperatively with each other, and
  • Learn environmental responsibility enabling them to become productive, responsible, contributing members of society.
