About BJM Elementary

Welcome to Beverly J. Martin Elementary School, a vibrant downtown community school dedicated to creating deep thinkers, for whom every moment is an awesome moment.

Our school is named in honor of Ms. Beverly J. Martin, an Ithaca educator who is best remembered as a warm, lively person with a great sense of humor who cared deeply about all children. We embody Ms. Martin’s beliefs. The school culture fosters a love for learning and values education as a human right. Together, students, staff and families focus on continued growth and change. Home and school collaborate to positively impact learning and to deepen our understanding of all cultures. We teach and embody the BJM Community Agreement through a school-wide positive behavior system. Go Tigers!
