Our mission is to provide a nurturing, positive, safe, and challenging environment where children are encouraged to develop academically, emotionally, socially, morally, and physically to their fullest potential; and to foster a climate which promotes self-esteem and prepares children to become productive citizens in an ever-changing society.

At Borden Elementary School, we believe that all students deserve to be treated with respect from students and adults, and practice being respectful of others. We believe that our students deserve to be challenged with high expectations by highly effective teachers. Our students also deserve to learn in a positive, nurturing, and safe environment with current technology and resources.

We believe in our students. We believe in their ability. We believe in their creativity. We believe in their intelligence. We believe in their enthusiasm to all the things they believe in. We believe in their liveliness. We believe in their innocence. We believe in their talent to overcome obstacles in their lives that would make many of us want to give up. We believe in our students.
