Pathways to Excellence

Chinook Elementary School, Auburn

The number one goal at Chinook Elementary School in Auburn, Wash., is to have each child reading at or above his or her grade level. “The greatest gift I believe as an educator that you can give a child is the ability to read,” says Principal Jennifer Davidson. “They can then read to learn, and they can become successful.” The instructors at Chinook have found that academic success and improved behavior go hand in hand, so their curriculum includes constant checkups with students to make sure they are grasping key concepts,  and students learn to appreciate the “Four Bs”: Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful.
