School History

Scales Elementary School was opened in the fall of 1977.  Scales originally served a student population in grades K-6.  Currently, Scales serves the student enrollment in grades K-5.  The students of Scales live primarily in a residential area west of Franklin Rd.  The population and ethnic make-up of Scales is reflective of the community and is of an increasingly diverse cultural and social background.  Scales’ leaders believe the school is an extension of the community and guided by democratic principles, dedicated to enhancing the rights and privileges of citizens, and laying a foundation for leadership.

Scales Elementary School is proud to offer additional enrichment activities to continually challenge our student population.  During the school year, students participate in several after school programs.   Some of our classes from previous years include: Green Team, Elementary World Language and many more!  Students can also choose to become a part of our Destination Imagination team, where students work together in teams on various projects requiring creative problem solving skills.  Those teams compete and often become recognized as some of the top teams in the state.  We are very proud of our students!
