It is my pleasure to be embarking on year 10 as Schofield’s principal and I cannot imagine being anywhere else!!
The Schofield spirit is tenacious in the support of all children and families. With our mascot being the Hawk, we often see it illustrated holding a STAR, which is an acronym for our school values of being Safe, Thoughtful, Accepting, Respectful. As early as Kindergarten we inculcate our children with these values, which mirror the district’s Commitment to Excellence, Cooperative and Caring Relationships, Respect for Human Differences and to Community.
In addition to the core values of Wellesley Public Schools, the Schofield community is also defined by guiding principles of open honest communication, high expectations, relationships which are based upon trust and mutual respect, shared responsibility, and commitment to maintaining a warm, safe, supportive and nurturing environment. The Schofield community reflects each of these core values and guiding principles in a variety of ways.
At Schofield, staff, students and parents work together to create and maintain a positive and enriching environment for children to learn and grow. Family involvement and communications between home and school receive top priority. The Schofield community benefits in many ways from an active and supportive Schofield PTO. Some of these benefits include significant physical improvements. Other enhancements are ongoing throughout each year. For example, the Creative Arts Committee provides many wonderful events to enhance the curriculum, as well as a Science Residency across K-5.
The Schofield community is very proud of the child centered environment which exists, where each child is accepted as an individual, and challenged to learn and grow in a manner which is respectful of his/her individual learning style.
