Mission and Values

Our purpose is to engage our diverse school community in the pursuit of educational excellence and success for all students.

 

 

 

  • Maximize Individual Student Potential
    All students should have the opportunity, instruction, guidance and support necessary to succeed in school and maximize their individual academic, social and emotional potential. Students must be active participants, at the center of the learning process, in an environment that encourages them to pursue their dreams.
     
  • Joy
    Joy and wonder are essential elements in the learning process which breed passion and creativity.
     
  • Hard Work and Perseverance
    Effort is more important than talent and should be cultivated in all aspects of school life. Success is earned through hard work and commitment.
     
  • Shared Responsibility
    Responsibility for excellence in education is shared by all members of the school community.  Success is achieved through teamwork and collaboration.
     
  • Lifelong Learning
    Students should cultivate the habits of mind to be curious, independent learners who pursue their passions and understand the beauty and power of knowledge.
     
  • Culturally Diverse Community
    Students develop compassion, empathy, and insight in an inclusive, culturally diverse community that requires them to consider various perspectives and adapt to different ways of being.
     
  • Character Development
    All of our actions and decisions should be guided by clear ethical principles. Doing what is right requires honesty, integrity and courage, and it is the school’s responsibility to support students in developing these essential traits.
