    Get to Know Bruce F. Vento Elementary

    As soon as you walk through the front doors of Bruce F. Vento Elementary, you will be greeted by colorful college flags and meet staff members who proudly share stories about their college experiences. At Vento, college is our goal for every student.

    Vento's mission is to provide every student with a strong foundation in reading, writing, math, and science. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for success in middle and high school and, ultimately, college.

    Available throughout the year are supports, enrichment, and celebrations that honor individual and school achievements. Bruce Vento Elementary has also established a Family Resource Center, where we partner with the Eastside Family Center and the Cultural Wellness Center to support our families.

    Vento's academic foundation is built upon a student's effort and performance. Teachers give students the time and support they need to achieve. Everything that Vento staff does fosters and supports high student achievement.
