Mission statement

"Where Excellence Soars!"

We say it... we mean it... from our newest kindergarten student to our most advanced fifth grader... it actually happens everyday.  We at Shorehaven believe that “if a student cannot learn the way we teach, then we will teach in a way the student can learn.”

Shorehaven Elementary opened for students in the fall of 1968 under the leadership of Herman Salter. The building contained sixteen classrooms and a cafeteria/auditorium. As the neighborhood grew, so did Shorehaven. Around 1972 a new addition was built onto the back hallway of the school. The new area was built to be an "open classroom." The fourth and fifth grade classrooms surrounded a very small school library. In 1979 the school continued to grow and another addition was completed.
