    Mission Statement

Etowah Elementary School will provide students the opportunity to become life-long learners. We will respect the whole child and nurture his/her potential in a safe environment.

We have five teachers with master’s degrees, one teacher with an advanced degree, and are proud to announce we have seven teachers who are National Board Certified Teachers. All of these take a great deal of work. We are proud of you!
