Welcome to Bret R. Tarver School

Dr. Joy Weiss, principal of TarverGreetings!

On behalf of the entire staff at Bret R. Tarver, we are excited to welcome you to our school! Tarver has a rich history of empowering our students to achieve their personal best, while providing continuous opportunities to learn, lead and achieve! 

Here at Tarver our motto is "Dolphins SWIM together . . . Succeed, Work hard, Inspire and Motivate!"  We believe that all students are capable of success and it is our mission to provide not only the best academic experience but also to support their emotional and social growth.  We teach our students to dream big, set goals and work to achieve those goals. Every day we celebrate the successes of all our students and help them open doors to future success!

We are proud to be a Leader in Me school, where our commitment is to create, cultivate and nurture individual leadership among our students and staff through teaching, learning and applying the 7 Habits of Happy Healthy Kids.  Applying these habits to everything we do, our students see their worth and potential and are inspired to be leaders not just in the school, but within their homes and community. 

As part of our commitment to building leaders, we believe in educating the whole child and providing opportunities for students to explore their talents and skills in a range of learning opportunities.  As the lead learners of the school, our students are provided a rigorous curriculum in reading, math, science and social studies. We also provide music, art, band and P.E.  Additionally, we have one-to-one technology for our 2nd through 5th grade students and we are excited to bring a 3-D printer to our campus this year as a way of helping our students extend their knowledge in STEM fields.  Our Kinder and 1st grade students are engaged with technology through our computer lab and we are looking to continue our one-to-one initiative with them over the next year.  We know the keys to their future success lie in the range of experiences they are part of both in school and at home.

We invite you to come alongside and partner with us on this incredible journey.  With our amazing and talented staff and parents working together, our students will be the leaders of tomorrow!  We look forward to meeting each of you, developing relationships and sharing our goals, vision and big rocks with all of you!

Tarver Dolphins SWIM!
