38 Elementary & Middle Schools Worth Visiting


Recently we chronicled 35 High Schools Worth Visiting. That led to a request for a similar compilation of inspiring elementary and middle schools. Far from exhaustive, our list includes schools that achieve extraordinary results, create powerful learning experiences, and/or have created innovative technology blends.


21. The 130 school New Tech Network (NTN) includes a growing number of project-based STEM-focused middle and elementary schools. The Evergreen School District in San Jose, California is home to Bulldog Tech, a NTN demonstration site, and Katherine Smith Elementary.



Running late?

Try these student-generated ideas:

  • Put out clothes the night before
  • Set two alarms - one to wake up and one to leave the house
  • Get more sleep (elementary school-aged children should get between 10 to 12 hours of sleep per night)
  • Help siblings who have trouble getting ready

Change something in your routine and be on time everyday.
