Mission Statement:

We, the students, staff, parents, and community members of Citrus Springs Elementary School will provide a learner-centered environment where students are given a well-rounded foundation of knowledge on a safe campus. By working together, our students will become literate, productive and successful citizens of a global community. We will strive to maintain each child’s right to learn through appropriate learning experiences, sound discipline policies and a respect for self and others. We pledge to communicate to parents and involve them in this process.
