Mission Statement:

To ensure all students can succeed in AP classes and graduate "world competitive", increase the amount and the depth of discourse among all students and staff where multiple entry points exist, to facilitate consistent higher level thinking.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

If we empower staff by building a culture of trust that encourages collaboration and innovation cultivated through instructional rounds, teacher rounds, student voices and powerful teams (PLC's) with the purpose of increasing meaningful discourse in all classes as evidenced by students sharing their thinking processes with each other, teachers establishing multiple entry points to higher-level thinking for all students, and a curriculum that is rigorous and relevant, then all students will be successful in AP classes and graduating world-competitive.
