Welcome to Atkinson Elementary
Home of the All-Stars
Atkinson Elementary School is an inclusive learning environment growing with positive energy and effort. Our school community embraces the philosophy and goals of North Andover Public Schools around academic and social expectations. Our mission is to cultivate a safe, respectful community of students who can critically-think and communicate effectively while preparing for their next levels of learning.
Atkinson School is the "Home of the All-Stars" and it’s also the birthplace of our town's RAISE values: Respect, Achievement, Inclusion, Service & Empathy. Our students are encouraged to be high achievers and productive citizens and to demonstrate RAISE values everyday. Atkinson educators present our children opportunities for academic and social-emotional growth that build on our community values and beliefs.
We expect our 365 students in grades 1-5 to be the all-stars of today and tomorrow; good and smart people who lead by example. As a community of talented teachers and supportive families, we'll be RAISE-ing the bar as high as we can for our children. This year, we want every all-star kid and adult to go out and prove that RAISE is the Craze!

High School Middle School Elementary
On Wednesday May 24th the Mental Health Awareness Club at NAHS is hosting a day long event to raise awareness for people with mental illnesses in the school community. It can be very difficult for many people to navigate and communicate about their mental health and they want to help students feel comfortable about their mental health and feel confident in asking for help if they need it. This event will be a great educational experience for everyone who attends..
The program will be open to the public from 1:00-2:00 to visit the Exhibitors in the Field House, a list of participants can be found at below, and at 2:00 pm, the public is welcome to attend Dr. Dana Osoweicki’s presentation in the NAHS auditorium.
We are currently in the design stage and will be seeking Town Meeting approval for the cost of construction.
