Welcome to the homepage for Fiske Elementary School, located in the historic town of Lexington, Massachusetts.  Fiske is a K-5 school with an approximate student population of 530 students.  Our school has a reputation for strong parental support and having a welcoming, inclusive environment. 

We hope that you find our school web site a comprehensive place to find information about the school and about Lexington Public Schools.  Our goal is to maintain our site so that news, information, and events are up to date and help keep the Fiske School community informed. 
 
Please be sure to check our site often and let us know how we can improve it.  Communication is a large part of the work we do!
 
 
 
Mission 
Fiske School supports and prepares diverse students to be life-long learners and successful members of a global society. 
 
Our Vision 
Fiske School is a welcoming, inclusive learning community. We foster an environment where all children and adults make contributions and are valued as individuals.  We educate the whole child by developing character and providing academic rigor through our school expectations of respect, responsibility and best effort.
 
We Believe...
  • all students should be actively engaged in learning and instruction should be differentiated to the greatest extent possible for all.
  • that in order to build a respectful environment for teaching and learning, we should know all students as learners, both academically and socially.

  • there should be consistent and common language across grade levels with clear and concise learning expectations for all students.

  • students should be helped to take responsibility for their own learning and there should be a gradual release of responsibility on the part of the teacher.

  • all staff should be enthusiastic about teaching and they must be collaborative in regards to planning.

  • there should be connections made to various content areas through multi-modal instruction that addresses varied learning styles. 

  • mini-lessons should be short, powerful, focused and objectives should be clearly stated to all students.

  • all students need to have prior knowledge activated during instruction and wait time is essential for those that need it.

  • varied forms and types of frequent assessment (screening, formative, summative, interim) are necessary to find out what students have learned and closure to lessons is important to reinforce objectives.
