Mission Statement

Eagle Rock Elementary School’s Gifted/High Ability Magnet was established for students with extraordinary academic abilities.  The population is culturally diverse, which gives all students the opportunity to work with children of different beliefs and values. Students benefit from a challenging curriculum with high expectations from their teachers.  All students score in the “proficient” and “advanced” category of the California Standards Test. They make a minimum of a year’s academic progress each year. The curriculum is extended and enriched by activities and experiences that encourage them to think beyond their classroom walls.  The educational program, which meets the emotional and academic needs of these exceptional students, enables them to successfully matriculate into the most challenging middle school programs in the Los Angeles area and prepares them to function successfully in the 21st Century.

Vision Statement

Eagle Rock Elementary School’s Gifted/High Ability Magnet offers students an outstanding academic experience in a small community school environment.  Our educational goal is for all students to participate in rigorous educational experiences that are designed to challenge their academic giftedness.

  • We establish a supportive learning environment in which intrinsic motivation and personal responsibility are nurtured and valued.
  • We believe that a thriving learning community values healthy communication, social justice, sustainability and respect for the environment.
