Leah Leonard, Principal


Welcome to Tyro Elementary School!


Tyro is a happy, welcoming school in which children are nurtured as they embark on the beginning of their academic career.  We welcome you as partners in your child’s learning and hope you will be a familiar face at Tyro.

Our school serves students in pre-school, life skills, and kindergarten through fifth grade.  We have a talented and highly skilled staff that works extremely hard on a daily basis.

In addition to creating a welcoming, thriving community for the students, we are incorporating Common Core State Standards and the North Carolina Essential Standards to educate your child. We work collaboratively as a school to implement focused lessons, teaching with rigor and relevance along with utilizing formative assessments to determine proficiency. 

Your child is our top priority and we look forward to continuing to work together.  We value your presence during all school events and hope to provide a variety of opportunities to help us connect with your child and family. 

Enjoy your school year and please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
