• Welcome to the Fort Smallwood Elementary School website!

    Fort Smallwood Elementary School is committed to providing the highest quality education for students ranging from Pre-K- Grade 5 in pursuit of continuous improvement and the achievement of our mission:

    We are committed to fostering each child’s full academic potential by providing instruction that is engaging, challenging,  and appropriately supported, and promotes lifelong learning.

    In addition to molding students who are able to think, read, and problem solve critically, we are proud of our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Program where students work collaboratively on project-based learning activities and espouse solutions to real-world problems.

    The effort to move a student toward his or her goals and reaching his or her highest potential is a collaborative one between school and community; as such, we encourage parental and community involvement in our school’s initiatives and programs.

    I encourage you to call or email the school with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the course of the school year. Additionally, take advantage of any opportunities to volunteer or visit whenever possible. I look forward to working with each student and family this upcoming year as we exemplify our school motto:

    Together, We Can Make a Difference!
