Welcome to the Randolph Elementary School

A message from the Administrative Team for the 2016-17 School Year

We warmly welcome you to the Randolph Elementary School website! Randolph Elementary is located in the heart of central Vermont at 40 Ayers Brook Road in Randolph, our school serves approximately 325 students in grades Pre-K-6. Our students reside in East Randolph, North Randolph, South Randolph, Randolph Center and the village of Randolph. We have a warm and caring faculty and staff committed to each and every child.  Together, our priority is to create a rich and engaging learning environment, where students are authentic contributors and partners in a positive, fun, and rigorous school climate. 

Our support for students goes beyond the walls of Randolph Elementary, it extends out to our sister schools within our Orange Southwest School District which is made up of the following schools: Braintree Elementary, Brookfield Elementary, Randolph Union High School, and Randolph Technical Career Center. We work together at the administrative level to ensure the success of our students through shared professional development, curriculum, coaching, and learning resources.  Whether our schools are large or small, we are committed to common values, high quality learning goals, and professional behavior.  This partnership allows each of our schools to thrive, and maintain unique traditions and community connections, while at the same time benefitting from increased collaboration and reduced financial costs.  It is a win-win for each school!

Randolph Elementary School is a “PBIS” school: committed to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports <>.  We believe that learning is not just limited to academics.  We create a safe and supportive school where students also learn how to be learners; how to be members of a caring community; and how to resolve challenges with peers through positive and appropriate strategies.  We directly teach behavior expectations, model what those expectations look like, and provide opportunities for practice across the entire school setting (classroom, hallways, cafeteria, playground, etc.).  When students make behavior errors, we treat those as we would treat academic errors.  We seek to understand why the student made the error, then reteach, support, and encourage until the appropriate behavior is mastered.  Across our system, we use the tools of Responsive Classroom to help us be consistent in this approach in every classroom across the school.  In short, each student’s success in both academics and behavior is our personal responsibility and we work hard to ensure every individual child experiences a positive and happy learning experience in our school!

In sum, our school is a community of happy learners, from kids to adults.  We love our schools and are honored to serve the children and families of the Randolph, Braintree and Brookfield Elementary School communities. We invite you to visit, get to know us, and join the fun! We suggest that you bookmark this page for quick reference.  If you do not find what you need, please give us a call and we are happy to help. Further, our school Facebook page is another place for updated information, photos, and announcements. “Like” us and you will always be immediately notified with current announcements!
