Welcome to Broad Rock Elementary School, the home of the Rams! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families, partners, and our exciting programs.
As your principal, I am honored to lead our school community to help provide an exciting and rigorous educational experience for our students. Our team is committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible support to learn and grow.
The mission of Broad Rock Elementary School, the gateway to success, is to empower students to become respectful, high achieving, life-long learners who are prepared to accomplish their goals. Our students will engage in diverse learning experiences and creative expression guided by the collaborative efforts of educators, families, and communities.
Our skilled and devoted staff are committed to making a difference. They want to have a positive impact on your child and above all, they want to provide them with an engaging and joyful learning experience that supports them in becoming independent learners. Our teachers are always working to get better at what they do through personal self-development and participation in a wide variety of professional development activities. They model life-long learning for our students and never settle for anything less than their best! Thank you to our incredible staff for their amazing professionalism and incredible energy and their commitment to our students.
I believe that a collaborative school environment is a key to creating successful teachers and students. Partnerships with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at Broad Rock Elementary. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community.
To my students, staff, families, and community; I am so honored to be your servant leader. Thank you for the opportunity to work with such an amazing school community. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

Principal Teya Green
