• Mission Statement:

    We believe that all members of our school community should be Appreciated, Impactful, Joyful, Connected, and Balanced. It is the mission of the Minot Forest Elementary School, in collaboration with parents and community members, that all students will be challenged to fully develop their knowledge, skills and dispositions to their greatest potential. Student learning will encompass not only acquisition of content knowledge but also skills that will allow our students to become productive members of the global community.


  • The Wareham Public Schools’ early childhood philosophy is to help every child develop to his or her maximum potential in state mandated curriculum using developmentally appropriate methods, taking into consideration their social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs. The administration and staff strive to provide every child with positive, supportive opportunities to develop knowledge, basic skills, and enthusiasm for becoming lifelong learners. We are committed to helping every child develop the self esteem and academic skills necessary to continue individual and collective growth in order to succeed in our increasingly global society.
