  • School Belief Statements

    • We believe students can find fulfillment in lifelong learning by acquiring critical thinking skills and embracing the diverse contributions of every community member.
    • We believe students should be encouraged to act honorably by respecting human dignity, accounting for their own choices, and following all classroom and school policies.
    • We believe every student can learn, and because each student learns in different ways, they should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support and assess their learning.
    • We believe state and national curriculum should guide student learning, and collaboration in Professional Learning Communities is integral to successful implementation of this curriculum.
    • We believe students should be given opportunities to lead and serve within their school and community.
    • We believe students, teachers, parents, and stakeholders have a collective responsibility to create pride in school and community.
