New Beginnings and Growth:


The Adaire Community is moving into new territory. We have much to celebrate with many successful current initiatives. And our landscape is growing wider. We have applied for several community partnerships in order to grow support for school programming. We remain open to new opportunities through a variety of venues to serve our families with high quality education enhancements. I am excited to dedicate our time and talents to producing educational growth for our students. 


Thank you, 

Anna Jenkins


Our new schoolyard - our community has been preparing this project for 3 years. So glad that it is coming now! Construction will begin soon and be completed by end of school year. This summer it will be open. 



We are hoping to begin Gifted testing in 2017 and planning to provide an even stronger enrichment program. 

Our school goal is to continue to have students attend and achieve each day!
