Belief Statements:

All students can learn.

Students need to not only develop a deep understanding of essential knowledge & skills, but also need to develop the capacity to apply their learning, and to reason, solve problems, & produce quality work.

The goal of our educational programs is to prepare students to become contributing members of society.

Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, & intellectual needs.

A safe & supportive learning environment promotes student achievement.

The success of our school system depends on the commitment of all staff (administrators, teachers & support staff) to high quality standards, expectations, & performances.

Effective collaboration & communication with families as partners in the education of their children is essential to the success of our school system.

Teachers, administrators, parents & the community share the responsibility for advancing the school system’s mission and goals.
