Louis Bohn Elementary provides the excellence in education that Dr. Bohn emphasized throughout his career. Since its inception, our dedicated staff has implemented the most current educational research in our teaching of children. We recognize and appreciate the diverse backgrounds of staff and students and encourage parents and community members to become a part of the Bohn family.
In 2010, Louis Bohn Elementary achieved an API of 820. This increase of 30 points from the 2008-2009 school year exceeded state requirements. Not content to merely celebrate this year’s accomplishment, the staff strives to refine our methods for preparing our students for responsible citizenship. Concentrating on language arts and math, we plan the same quality education that has been provided since 1992, while embellishing the curriculum to recognize the increased expectations of technology and society upon our young people. Louis Bohn Elementary builds character as well as academics, and is a structured, creative, safe school in which to educate a child.
