Welcome to Obama!

  • At Barack and Michelle Obama Elementary, we inspire all students to become leaders through challenging academics and collaboration. We proudly use the School-wide Enrichment Model to develop gifts and talents in all our students. Students  examine their interests by choosing enrichment clusters in the areas of science, art, music and athletics, just to name a few. Students prepare to become leaders in our community through core subjects along with fun and engaging field trips. Barack and Michelle Obama Elementary works closely with families to ensure students learn and grow. Our focus on academics, enrichment activities, family engagement and community partnerships makes Barack and Michelle Obama Elementary an amazing school.
