It is the mission of Germantown Elementary School District #60 to educate all children to the best of their abilities through the cooperation of school, home, and community. The District, in an active partnership with parents and community, promotes excellence in a caring environment in which all students learn and grow. Through this partnership we hope to empower all students to develop a strong self-esteem and to become responsible learners and decision-makers. Attainment of our mission is determined by student academic achievement, social development and positive attitude toward learning.
The Honor Roll program at Germantown Elementary School District #60 recognizes the academic achievement of all fifth through eighth grade students. Students with a grade point average between 3.76-4.0 earn a place on High Honor Roll while students with a GPA between 3.5-3.75 are designated as Honor Roll recipients.

Where Are They Now?
Calling All Germantown Bulldog Alumni! At Germantown Elementary, one of our biggest priorities is to provide our students with a foundation for learning that will help lead them to success later in life. After talking to a Germantown alumna this weekend, I walked away feeling so proud of her accomplishments. It spearheaded an idea to start a Facebook series called, “Where Are They Now?”. With that being said, I am looking for any and all graduates of Germantown Elementary who would be interested in being spotlighted in our new Facebook series, “Where Are They Now?”. If you are interested in being part of this series, simply click here for more information.
