Belief Statements

We Believe That...
  • Student learning is the chief priority for the school
  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs
  • Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety on instructional approaches to support their learning
  • Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process
  • A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning
  • Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission
  • Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school
  • Students learn best when they have appropriate opportunities for success
  • Exceptional students (e.g., special education, limited English proficiency, talented and gifted, etc.) require special services and resources
  • Schools need to function as a learning organization and promote opportunities for all those who have a stake in the success of the school to work together as a community of learners
