Edward W. Bower Elementary School

At Bower, we strive to create a warm, nurturing place for children to grow. Combining high academic expectations with an environment rich in the arts, our hope is to instill in each youngster a passion for learning, the courage to stand up for democratic ideals, and the tools to help transform aspirations into reality. Our school's goal is: To enrich and celebrate the unique talents of each student.

We offer a full day kindergarten program designed to help children enhance social growth while exploring literature, mathematics, and our community. In the primary grades, these types of opportunities continue, gaining depth with each year. In the upper grades, children explore a variety of literature , gain in-depth knowledge about many scientific topics, and math skills that are in-line with state standards and assessments. Our social studies curriculum centers on democracy, citizenship, and the history of the United States, New York State, and cultures around the world. Children in grades four and five also have an opportunity to become part of our student government, where they gain first-hand experience on democratic leadership.
