Our Mission is to establish the foundation for lifelong learning by assuring optimal learning for all students through a positive, yet challenging environment.
Student learning should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.
Students learn best when they have appropriate opportunities for success.
Students need to demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills.
Students need to apply their learning actively to solve problems and to produce quality work.
Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.
Challenging expectations increase individual student performance.
Assessments of student learning should provide students with a variety of opportunities to demonstrate their achievement.
A student's self-esteem and attitude toward learning is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff.
A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
Teachers, administrators, parents, students, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission.
The commitment to continuous improvement is necessary if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.
