Our Mission

The mission of James L. McGuire Elementary School is to provide a safe, nurturing environment of mutual respect while inspiring children to achieve their academic potential as life-long learners. Students will be valued for their individuality and diverse capabilities as they are taught to face the future and contribute to society with compassion, courage, knowledge, and vision.

From the Principal’s desk

Dear families and community members,

Serving as our school’s principal, where I have witnessed our youngest of learners grow into outstanding young citizens, has been my pleasure and honor.

McGuire is a place where exploration, rigor, creativity, and individualism are valued. Our school is more than a learning institute – it is a place where the youngest learners dip their toes into the ever-changing pool of knowledge. The hallmark of our school is student success – in academics, socially, and emotionally.

We are blessed to have these inspirational and curious young learners pass through our halls each day, and we’re here to help you and your child make the most out of the McGuire experience.

We know that learning never stops, and we are thrilled that we have the opportunity to work with the youngest learners in the district to set them on a path of wonder, discovery, and success.

With gratitude,

Alicia Lisi
