Incline Elementary School is a public community elementary school serving Incline Village and the surrounding areas. In 2016-2017 Incline ES served 400 students in grades PK-5 with 33% of students qualifying for Free and Reduced Meals. Our diverse student body is 33% English Language Learner and 15% students with disabilities. Instruction is organized around STREAM: Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math; students have opportunities to receive daily STREAM instruction with their classroom teachers, participate in science labs and exploration with our grant-funded science instructor, go on field trips to explore the Tahoe environment, and have access to after school and summer STREAM programs through partnerships with our Tahoe-based partners. In addition, Incline ES offers a comprehensive health and wellness program that includes a full-time PE instructor who provides fitness activities during the school day, special wellness-themed events such as Jog-a-thon, Field Day, Color Run, and Harvest of the Month, as well after school fitness activities such as soccer and ski club. Incline ES engages our families throughout the year with opportunities for collaboration and celebration such as Back-to-School Night, parent conferences, Family Literacy Night, Family Science Night, Dia de los Muertos, PTA meetings for both English and Spanish speaking parents, parent workshops, and student celebrations of achievement.
21st Century Vision: Incline Elementary School supports technology implementation and 21st Century Skills in a student centered classroom that gives students the opportunity to collaborate, think creatively, and research real world issues. Efforts to advance student‐centered learning through 21st Century instruction and technology use elevate students’ readiness for college and careers through learning environments that develop 21st Century Competencies. At IES we will foster student and professional development that promotes the use of digital tools that can be used to improve collaboration, creativity, and differentiation while addressing content standards.
Mission: Incline Elementary School empowers all students to strive for academic, social and physical excellence while fostering a love for learning and respect for self and others. We believe education is the shared responsibility of staff, students, parents and community.
Student Pledge of Learning: I am an active learner. I value other points of view. I succeed by being my best self. Failure is an opportunity, not a certainty. Effort is the key to my success.
Mascot: The Wolf-pups
