At Myrtle S. Finney Elementary School, a quality and comprehensive education is at the forefront of our mission. We offer multiple programs that set our school apart and give your student an environment in which he/she can thrive, socially and academically. Finney strives to provide programs that will positively affect student growth, helping develop the “whole child.”
Why enroll at Finney? There are many excellent reasons! We have a strong writing program, ensuring students develop necessary skills to produce exceptional writing with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation, where their ideas can flourish. Our Visual and Performing Arts Program ensures that your student’s learning goes beyond hitting the books, tapping into their creative side.
Finney, one of 48 schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District, is also an NCUST award-winning school. NCUST, the National Center for Urban School Transformation, celebrates schools based on a comprehensive view of student data, awarding urban schools that showcase the best practices found in America’s top schools. Receiving this award means that Finney is a place where every student can achieve academically, find a love of learning, and promote from sixth grade well prepared to succeed in middle/high school, college and career.
At Finney, we are also committed to helping your child feel loved and emotionally fulfilled. Our school fosters a small school, family-oriented environment. Small class sizes compared to other school districts help deepen students connectedness with their peers and their teachers. Our 100% highly qualified teaching staff are skilled at instilling a love of learning in their pupils. We also offer a Social Emotional Learning Program to help students acquire skills to manage their emotions. You will also find a preschool program, free before and after school childcare through the YMCA, and one to one devices in grades 3-6, which are proven to boost student achievement.
