We promise . . .
Our students an optimal learning environment that includes leadership opportunities, healthy community practices and a better understanding of the world around them. We have enthusiastic parents and family support. Using shared decision-making, our entire school community unites to provide an educational program committed to excellence emphasizing language arts, visual and performing arts, math, science, and technology. At our school, each and every student receives individual attention from a community of caring adults. We address not only academic, but also social and emotional needs. All community members—students, staff, parents, and volunteers—become part of a nurturing Sutro School family.
Letter from Principal: Marian Currell
I am honored and excited to be the Principal of Sutro Elementary School. Sutro is a school where approximately 260 students learn to be successful academically, physically and socially each year. We give students the skills to share their knowledge, develop a healthy lifestyle, and behave in ways that are respectful to everyone. Staff, students, and parents are all proud of the community we have created.
High academic expectations and our Cantonese bi-literacy program are the cornerstone of our work with students, and we are successful. Teachers are being trained in the latest strategies designed to promote student growth and elicit high intellectual performance. Sutro has been focusing on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and our teachers are highly skillful at helping all students achieve these standards.
I aim to ensure that Sutro continues to foster responsible, respectful and kind students. I am honored to serve all students, teachers, and families in partnership. Thank you all for the opportunity to lead Sutro Elementary for a second year.
- Marian Currell, Principal
