School Accountability Report Cards (SARC)

Welcome to Tunnell Elementary School's Annual School Accountability Report Card. Parents will find valuable information about our academic achievement, professional staff, curricular programs, instructional materials, safety procedures, classroom environment, and condition of facilities.

Tunnell Elementary School provides a warm, stimulating environment where students are actively involved in learning academic subject matter and positive values. Students receive a standards-based, rigorous curriculum provided by a dedicated and professional staff that is based on the individual needs of the students.  Ongoing evaluation of student progress and achievement helps us refine our instructional programs so that students can achieve academic proficiency. We are committed to providing the best educational programs and student learning experiences for our Tunnell Thunderbirds to help them to reach their maximum potential.

Mission Statement: All students will succeed to their fullest potential through the united efforts of students, staff, parents, and the community while on a safe campus.
