About Us

At Doherty, it is our mission, in partnership with families and our community, to provide a safe place where all children learn, laugh and grow together into lifelong learners.

Our Doherty Family exists for one of the most noble missions imaginable--to partner with our families and community in order to provide a safe place where all children learn, laugh, and grow together into lifelong learners.  In order to achieve this mission, we are intentional with how we behave every single day when we set foot on campus.  We are collaborative, respectful, honest, supportive, positive, and reflective. And, we will succeed by growing together as a family, building a culture of positive abundance, providing strong systems for student support, and delivering wildly engaging & relevant instruction.  

 Welcome to Doherty Elementary!  Where we are a family, doing everything we can to make ourselves and each other happy!
