Every child is a unique individual and must be treated with respect. The purpose of education is to produce citizens who strive for personal and academic excellence and who contribute to the well-being and growth of their peers and the community. Students will be able to problem solve, locate and utilize information, appreciate the arts and physical health and develop positive character values.
Good teaching is expected and teachers are encouraged to continually grow. They know the curriculum, utilize multiple teaching strategies and resources, listen to and question students, allow individual and group work, integrate technology and hands-on activities and have good relationships with other students, parents and colleagues. As a professional learning community, teachers collaborate with other professionals within and outside the school to improve their practice. We strive to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment.
We expect and encourage the role and responsibility of parents as partners in their child’s education. We work together to support students as they learn and grow.
