  • Medlock Bridge community, 

    Thank you for visiting the Medlock Bridge Elementary website. I am the proud principal of an amazing school! Our mission is to educate and inspire all students to become lifelong learners. We strive to meet the needs of our diverse learners by providing 21st Century learning experiences, building strong community relationships, and fostering a positive and safe school climate.

    When you walk the halls of Medlock Bridge Elementary, you will see vibrant displays of student work. In classrooms you will see students thinking critically about STEM explorations, or collaborating in teams on Project Based Learning units, or communicating about research as part of lessons in literacy. You will see students fostering their creativity in Music and Art classes. You will see students maintaining healthy life habits in Physical Education. You will see students in the Media Center developing a lifelong love of reading. When you speak with our faculty and staff you will witness our focus on teaching the "whole child", providing programming and enrichment that supports our students' academic, social, emotional, and behavioral development. When you look at our students you will see lifelong learners with solid foundations to pursue their chosen paths.

    Medlock Bridge Elementary has established itself as a world class school, earning recognitions such as the 2014 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. We know you will love our school as much as we do. 

    Matthew Vance, Principal
