Our Shared Values

We believe . . . 

  • Teachers must be dedicated lifelong learners who address the learning styles of all students through rigorous inquiry-based, differentiated instruction
  • Each student is unique and possesses the ability to achieve at high academic levels
  • Teachers must share, cultivate, and search for the untapped potential that lies within every student by providing them a learning environment that will support and foster enthusiasm for mastery of essential skills, critical thinking, and enduring understandings
  • Teachers have a responsibility to guide each student in realizing self-worth and personal responsibility while emphasizing the importance of respecting diversity
  • Teachers are responsible for preparing students for success in middle school and beyond, and ultimately to meet the increasing demands of a global society and workforce
  • A positive and supportive school community is directly related to student success
  • Education works best when students, families, school staff, educational entities, business and community leaders are meaningfully involved in the education process
