Mission Statement



Vernon Elementary is a PK-5th grade elementary school located in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

We are delighted to announce that Vernon Elementary School is an Expeditionary Learning (EL) school since the Fall of 2013! For more information about EL, please visit www.elschools.org.  Please take time to read this parent information sheet about Expeditionary Learning.

Vernon is an Expeditionary Learning School.

Expeditionary Learning schools inspire the motivation to learn, engage teachers, and students in new levels of focus and effort, and transform schools into places where students and adults become leaders of their own learning. We provide a model that challenges students – even those starting with low skill levels – with high-level tasks and active roles in the classroom. This model succeeds in urban, rural, and suburban schools and at every grade level.
