Welcome to Drayton Hall Elementary School


The mission of Drayton Hall is to provide our students with a quality education in a safe environment. In cooperation with parents and community, the staff will prepare each student for academic excellence, social responsibility and personal success through the use of a challenging and relevant curriculum.
Students are the main focus of the faculty and staff at Drayton Hall. More than 60% of our highly qualified faculty have earned advanced degrees and several are National Board Certified Teachers. We are all committed to excellence through the reinforcement of a rigorous curriculum and high expectations within a nurturing learning environment.
