We are a neighborhood school, located in east-central Moscow. We have approximately 280 students each year, kindergarten through fifth grade. Lena Whitmore Elementary shares the site with a city park. Our school is able to enjoy the playground area during school day and then it becomes Moscow Parks and Recreation jurisdiction in the evenings, weekends, and non-school days.
Moscow School District’s school calendar has 170 student days and our school day for students is from 8:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8:15 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. on Friday.
Lena Whitmore Elementary is the ideal sized elementary school…two classes at each grade level, k – 5 (with the exception of our large second grade that has three). Starting this school year, we offer full-day kindergarten as well!
Thanks to Moscow School District class size limitations, we average 21 students per class.
