Anne Fox Elementary School currently serves approximately 375 students in kindergarten through sixth grade and has a very diverse population of students representing many languages and cultures.  

Teachers work within professional learning communities, working collaboratively to ensure the success of the whole child.  To meet academic needs, our students’ needs are met through differentiated instruction and best practice teaching strategies.  Fox provides core curriculum to all students through a balanced literacy program.  Students participate in guided reading, shared reading, independent reading, vocabulary development and writing daily.  Additional support for reading and math is provided through an accelerated block structure that ensures students receive daily targeted instruction to accelerate learning.  Math core curriculum is also provided through a balanced math model where students receive shared instruction and small group guided instruction.  The opportunity for advanced mathematics is offered in grades 3 through 6.  Additionally, students receive weekly social and emotional lessons targeted for their specific grade level needs.

Fox is home to several instructional classrooms where we service students kindergarten through 6th  grade that thrive in a smaller classroom setting.

Fox School holds high academic and behavioral expectations. This is reinforced through PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support), which means the students follow school wide expectations of being respectful, being responsible and being safe.

Students have the opportunity to participate in many clubs and enrichment activities such as Poms, Chess, Battle of the Books, Photography, Rocketry, Rube Goldburg, Makerspace, Student Ambassadors, Patrols, GEMS, and instrumental music for 5th and 6th grades.

Anne Fox is named after a former first-grade teacher in District 54 whom colleagues and administrators recognized as a “master teacher” of the district.
