The mission of the Scituate Public Schools is to provide the opportunity for a comprehensive education for all students which focuses on cognitive, emotional physical, and social development. The education program fosters students' reading, writing, calculating, problem-solving, critical thinking skills, and creative expression. The school environment nurtures self-confidence, independence, cooperation, and the physical well-being of all students. The schools encourage students to develop a sense of values and responsibilities which enables them to be contributing members of their communities and of the multicultural, global society. In partnership with the family, the schools guide students toward becoming lifelong learners with a positive outlook on the world.
