We believe that…
  • the achievement of high standards of learning is expected of all of our students. 
  • students need to not only develop a deep understanding of essential knowledge and skills, but also need to develop the capacity to apply their learning in authentic contexts, and to reason, solve problems, and produce quality work. 
  • curriculum and instructional practices should incorporate a variety of learning activities to accommodate differences in learning styles. 
  • the utilization of technology, in various forms, is essential to the success of students and staff. 
  • a safe, inviting, and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning. 
  • a student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff. 
  • effective collaboration and communication with home and community is essential to the success of our school.
