Plymouth Center School, a unique learning community, strives to awaken the natural curiosity and love of learning in all of our students while providing a supportive, safe, and nurturing environment. We are committed to each and every child, affording them their right to learn and achieve their highest level of proficiency in essential academic, technological, and artistic skills, while fostering respect and social, emotional, creative, and physical development. Our diverse learning environment affords everyone the opportunity to maximize their potential toward the ultimate goal of living a purposeful, contributing, and fulfilling life.
The Plymouth Center School is a beautiful Pre-K to second grade school housing approximately 370 students. The learning community is rich with diversity. The staff works together to identify specific needs of the learners and develops improvement plans to assist every individual in meeting success.
In order to promote a positive school climate for all, we have introduced elements of the Responsive Classroom model, RULER, and Second Step curriculum. Each day in each classroom, Morning Meetings take place as a way of creating a supportive classroom environment where they practice and learn about empathy, how emotions matter, and skills to self regulate. We also utilize Bucket Fillers where students are celebrated for "filling buckets" of other students through showing empathy, being kind, and being respect.
The staff of Plymouth Center School is committed to the process of school improvement. As part of our commitment, we have several active staff committees that engage in reflection on Best Practices - particularly in the areas of curriculum development, instructional planning, effective assessment, and differentiation. These discussions take place as part of our School Improvement Committee, during faculty meetings and professional development, and throughout grade level team meetings.
