About Us

Commitment to Excellence:

Gerena Community School will provide a culture of educational excellence within the Montessori and Cornerstone environments, where all learners will be challenged, their efforts valued, and high standards of behavior, citizenship, and academics are expected. We are a diverse learning community built upon mutual respect and responsibility within a safe environment. We believe that the goal of proficiency for all learners is attainable, thus enabling them to become critical thinkers and contributing members of a 21st Century society.

School Vision:

Gerena CommunitySchool provides an academically and behaviorally rigorous environment with a focus on core math and literacy instruction for the children of the North End and other neighboring communities in the city of Springfield.  We provide an intense focus on literacy skills to ensure that each of our scholars is reading on grade level by the end of second grade.  Our intensive core literacy instruction then allows us to meet the individual needs of every Gerena Community Elementary School scholar in other core content areas. We believe that in order to truly prepare each scholar for the rigors of middle school, high school, and college we must provide them with a joyful and demanding work environment. 

At German Gerena Community Elementary School all scholars are held accountable for classwork, homework, mastery of learning objectives, and fulfillment of behavioral expectations on a daily basis. Aristotle said that “we are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence then is not an act but a habit.” 

Scholars at German Gerena Community School are provided with excellence and taught to have excellence in all they do.  This constant pursuit of excellence lives within a culture of mutual respect and drives everything in our school community.
