Welcome to Margaret G. Scotten Elementary

AnnouncementsGo To Top of Page

Scotten School is a wonderful place for students to learn.  We provide a rich education that integrates visual and performing arts and technology into the state standards.  Our teachers and support staff are friendly and very experienced in working with children.
Scotten students receive rich instruction through classroom programs by their teachers as well as visiting artists and enrichment programs during and after school. We have hands on art, martial arts, Hip Hop dancing, Japanese drumming and even a climbing wall. Our Cross Country team successfully hosted 17 schools at our 3rd annual invitational meet last year. What great families and staff we have who are so willing to help whenever and wherever needed to deliver such strong programs to our students.
