About our school

Propel Braddock Hills Elementary is devoted to establishing a school community which instills in students a life-long love of learning that extends to the home and surrounding neighborhoods. This will be accomplished through the use of best practices, innovative teaching methods, and technology integration. We will inspire our students to reach their full potential by providing them with the opportunities to achieve their goals and maximize their unique abilities while appreciating, respecting, and encouraging their individuality.

A Special Thank You
