Opened in the fall of 2000, Audrey W. Garrett Elementary is one of 20 K-5 schools in the Alamance-Burlington School System. Our curriculum and instruction are based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.
When you step into a Garrett classroom, you will experience teaching at its best! Through formal and informal assessment, our students' needs are determined and drive classroom instruction. In the course of a day, you will see reading, writing and vocabulary building through shared, guided, and independent activities, in addition to literacy centers. Math is also taught through the use of these same strategies as well as the hands-on exploration of concepts and problem solving using manipulatives.
Many extra-curricular opportunities are offered to our students such as, Odyssey of the Mind, Battle of the Books, Science Fair, Safety Patrol, Technology Club, Family Dances, Strings Instruction, Spelling Bee participation, and Writing Contests.
Come spend a day with the Garrett Gators and you will see what high expectations can mean in the life of a child!
