Welcome to Pershing Elementary School, home of the Tigers.

 Pershing Elementary School is home to approximately 575 students (kindergarten-fifth grade).  Wehave a diverse student population and offer general education and special education programming.  Student learning at Pershing is a partner ship between students, parents, and staff to provide an outstanding educational enviro nment. By working together, students learn and grow academically, behaviorally, and socially.

   We realize that successful schools result when a partnership exists between schools, parents, and the community. In addition to our dedicated parent organization, the entire Pershing community is committed to ensuring the best possible elementary school experience for all students.

We will continue to have a laser-like focus on student growth in order to prepare children for college and/or career readiness.  We hope you visit us and see firsthand why we are proud to be Tigers!
