Recognizing the special and specific individual needs of elementary students, Armstrong Elementary School seeks to provide a positive and nurturing environment and flexible structure which enables children to grow and experience daily success. We will instill in each student a sense of community responsibility and the importance of life-long learning. This nurturing environment will foster risk-taking, individuality, and self-discipline, and will encourage children to realize their potential emotionally, socially, physically, morally, and academically.
We believe children's passions are fostered through social, emotional, and intellectual experiences, children deserve a safe, nurturing, and child-centered environment, and engaging children through choice in collaborative and independent work makes them feel successful. Therefore, Our vision is for parents, teachers, and students to create a learning community where all children reach their individual potential.
Armstrong School, the first school in the Highland Park Independent School District, opened its doors in October 1914 after the incorporation of the Town of Highland Park in 1913. Mrs. John Scarbrough Armstrong (Alice) donated the land upon which the school was built in memory of her late husband, the purchaser and developer of the area that became Highland Park.
