T.E. Culbertson Elementary School provides the resources needed for students to be successful.  Culbertson's dedicated and knowledgeable staff provides differentiated instruction and timely interventions to maximize student learning.

The Culbertson staff plans instruction by answering three simple questions:  What is it we want our students to know? How will we know when they have learned it?  What will we do when students do not learn? Planning instruction in this manner allows Culbertson to continually search for more efficient means of providing learning activities and assessments to students.  

Culbertson is dedicated to gaining the support of all stakeholders to makes "Success for All Students" a reality.  It takes a focused collection of teachers, school administrators, parents, and community members to educate a child.   At Culbertson, we look forward to working with our families and community members to ensure that our students are college and career ready.
