GILMORE SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
We at the Gilmore Elementary School believe that each child can learn. All of our educational practices are based on that belief.
We are committed to creating a child centered environment that promotes positive self esteem and self confidence. Our school values and acknowledges good citizenship and a sense of community.
We provide each child with an opportunity to develop cognitively and socially within an emotionally and physically safe environment. Our successful academic program, which is based upon a careful analysis of individual student needs, focuses on reading, writing, calculating, problem solving, critical thinking skills, and creative expression. Each child at the Gilmore Elementary School flourishes in an environment that celebrates the diversity of our students while stressing the unity of our purpose, that children will succeed.

Gilmore Elementary Uniforms: Embracing “Spirit Wear”
The Gilmore Elementary School embraces school uniforms or “spirit wear.” Research shows that school uniforms help students to focus on learning, increase school pride, reduce peer pressure, provide fewer distractions and lessen expenses for parents.
The Gilmore Elementary School colors are khaki and navy blue. Our uniform is collared navy blue shirts with khaki pants, shorts or skirts. If wearing a skirt, girls may wear white or navy tights. You may purchase uniforms at any local retail store.

Every Brockton Public School has an individual School Improvement Plan, a two‐year strategic plan for schools to follow to achieve academic and non-academic goals. The plans are developed among school leadership, faculty and staff and serve as a blueprint for success.
School Improvement plans require school personnel to set challenging goals for student performance, and must articulate the strategies the school staff will use to reach their targets.
In addition to approving each school’s SIP, Central Office conducts three to four “Walk Throughs” per school per year to gather data and provide feedback to site-level leaders about how effectively the plans are being implemented. What’s exciting about this is that everyone recognizes the importance of this kind of feedback and is actively supporting this kind of valuable work – principals, teachers, administrators and union officials.
