Lorilyn Caron, principal of Mohegan Elementary, is proud to show off the school's bright, happy hallways and…More classrooms. She takes time to point out the school's rules for good behavior program, its well-stocked library, technologically advanced computer room, and sunny, colorful classrooms.
The school has a cheery atmosphere. Pupils are well behaved, teachers are enthusiastic and welcoming, and the whole building is brightened by a series of murals, showing animals, historical and fantastical figures, and illustrations of good citizenship.
Mohegan Elementary School is home to the town's largest and deepest special-needs program, and its most ethnically diverse group of students. Its community-based programs, such as "Raising Readers" and "Mile Markers" reflect the bond between the school and the families it serves.
