Mission Statement

The Sayre community will provide a safe learning environment where staff, students, and parents work together to motivate the highest achievement for every child.  We are committed to fostering respect and acceptance, encouraging creativity, promoting critical thinking, and developing life-long learners.

Sayre Elementary is a community of learners. We have skilled and motivated teachers and staff working together with parents in a caring environment. Our goal is to provide the best possible education to our more than 598 students.

Sayre Elementary School is located in the City of South Lyon in the southwest corner of Oakland County. South Lyon is twenty minutes from the city of Ann Arbor and forty-five minutes from Detroit. It is a fast-growing yet close-knit community with many cultural and recreational attractions just a short distance away. The University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and Washtenaw Community College are located nearby, and South Lyon has the potential for lifelong learning.
