  • Principal Laura Martin

    Welcome John Muir Eagles to the 2017-18 school year!  I am looking forward to another great year!  We will continue John Muir’s long history of success that has been built on traditions that have provided students with exceptional instruction in a warm and caring environment.

    John Muir is now in our 2nd year as a STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focused school, creating a pathway for our students through Project Lead the Way.  Again, this year we will have two classes in grades 3-5th that will participate in STEM modules.  It is our desire and commitment to provide Muir students with a 21st Century education emphasizing Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Communication.  Eventually, it is our goal to have STEM in all grades K-5.  Also, we are a certified AVID school.  We offer AVID in all 3rd-5th grade classes.  AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teaches skills and behaviors to prepare our students for college readiness in a global society.  In addition, all students in 1st-5th grades have 1:1 chromebooks in their classrooms.  Students in 4th/5th grades will have the opportunity to take their chromebooks home after a parent attends a meeting and signs necessary paperwork.   At John Muir, it is our desire that students become lifelong self-directed learners who are responsible citizens, fluent readers, problem solvers, technologically aware and effective communicators prepared for college and careers.
