Welcome to Gainfield Elementary School!
Nestled in the heart of Southbury, Gainfield Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in Region 15. The school serves approximately 370 students, is supported by a caring community, involved parents, an exceptional staff, and a dedicated Board of Education.
There is a rich tradition of helping students achieve their highest potential while simultaneously creating a caring community of learners in this school. At Gainfield, we help our students along their path to success by having them “follow the T.R.A.C.K.S.” This acronym stands for Trust, Respect, Accountability, Cooperation, Kindness, and Safety. These traits are foundational for creating habits of good citizenship. By working and learning together, Gainfield staff members and students create a community where everyone is happy and respected.
As a professional learning community, teams of educators are focused on the teaching/learning process and collaborate on a weekly basis. Analyzing common formative assessment data, discussing instructional strategies, and job embedded training are a few of the many ways our teams of teachers and curriculum specialists aspire to continuously improve learning. On a daily basis, our students engage in rigorous academic pursuits. There is a rich curriculum in place to support learning in all subject areas – reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. Our collective goal is to help students navigate their personal learning pathway.
