Welcome to Bonita School. Parents will find valuable information regarding academic achievement, professional staff, curricular programs, instructional material, school facilities and safety procedures. Bonita School is proud to offer the perfect ingredients required for a successful school: a motivated and appreciative student body, a supportive family group, a highly qualified staff, and
an involved and supportive group of community sponsors who offer enrichment opportunities to Bonita students. Together, these groups have combined to build a successful partnership that has created a great school. By implementing a challenging standards based curriculum, working collaboratively, and focusing on ongoing evaluation of student progress, we refine instructional practices that support the academic proficiency of our students. Our commitment to student success has lead us to focus on technology to prepare students for the future. Students in kindergarten, first and second grades utilize iPads for daily small group instruction. All classrooms, grades first through sixth, are equipped with Chromebooks for each student. Interactive Smart Boards have been installed in approximately 50% of all classrooms. With these technological advances being utilized at Bonita, we know we are preparing our students for the future.
Our mission is to ensure that all students learn by creating a community that focuses on student learning, by working collaboratively and holding ourselves accountable for results.
