Welcome to Gower Elementary School



Gower Elementary is a place that helps children reach their dreams with teachers, staff, parents, and the community, collaborating to ensure we provide all the support needed for our students to succeed. Gower was built in 1989 and is a part of the Hillwood Cluster. Our enrollment is currently around 650 students in grades Prek-4. Gower Elementary is “Home of the Gators.” Green and white are our school colors.

All of Gower’s staff members are highly qualified in all areas. We have an outstanding music department along with highly dedicated teachers in our P.E., art, and computer departments. Our Exceptional Educators are among the top in MNPS and are committed to providing the services needed to all of our students. We are supported by our highly qualified Literacy Coach, Media Specialist, and many other Support staff who make Gower a wonderful place to work and attend. The Gower family works together as a team to provide all students with the best education they deserve, need, and are entitled.

Gower is focused on creating a culture of kindness and good citizenship in all children. With the help of our committed School Counselor, we are able to reach and teach the whole child. Gower currently has at least 25 countries represented within our halls which include five ethnic backgrounds making Gower wonderful and diverse.

Gower has a very active PTO group that strives to support the school in many different ways. We want you to consider joining this group to ensure that we continue to seek out new ways to build a bridge that closes any gaps between home and school.

Gower Elementary is a great place for children to learn and have fun. Please consider becoming a part of the Gower Family. We want to be your first Choice!

Vision: Our vision is that the Gower staff will provide high quality instruction and diverse learning experiences that develop the whole child in a safe environment.

 Mission: The mission of Gower Elementary School is to create DREAMS, to Develop Respectful, Educated, Accomplished, and Motivated Students.
