Our Mission Statement
Our school will provide children with a safe and nurturing environment. Students will be challenged by rigorous academic standards, yet be given individual accommodations to help them work at a proper pace. To become successful members of society, students need to learn how to process and evaluate information in order to make critical decisions academically, and for their own futures. Self-esteem will be developed through participating in activities that give students opportunities to help each other and the broader community. We must instill an attitude in which respect for the individual is stressed, and one in which students have a sense of being a valuable part of the school and the community. Our students will feel challenged by the academic standards we set for them. They should develop a sense of self worth, confidence, and independence from the opportunities we provide for them. We will use the results of formal and informal assessments and surveys to evaluate our progress towards our goals. This assessment will drive our use of district and school level resources for staff development when we discover areas of need in our mission. With this as our mission, our students will become successful, productive members of society, ready to face the challenges of the future, and respect the lessons of the past.
