The Vision of Kincaid Elementary is to create a learning environment where all students are motivated to work hard, do the right thing and learn something every day.

The mission of Kincaid Elementary is to encourage every individual child to reach his or her potential while celebrating the diversity of our school family. We strive to create a safe and cooperative environment where students will develop and demonstrate responsibility and respect for themselves and others.

We believe that every student should be valued for his or her unique qualities.

We believe that all decisions should be based on student learning and success.

We believe that students learn in different ways and that differentiated instruction should be provided to meet student needs.

We believe that a strong foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics is essential to success in all contest areas.

We believe that students learn best when they have the appropriate resources available to them, including state-of-the-art technology.

We believe that a safe and civil environment promotes optimal student learning.

We believe that academic success and strong character development is a shared responsibility of both the school and the families.

We believe that all students can attain character qualities and develop work habits that will assure greater success in learning.
