Belief Statements 

We believe:

  • all decisions are based on the best interest of our students. 

  • students are whole beings, valued and respected for their uniqueness, fully capable of and expected to reach their maximum learning potential. 

  • that meaningful learning occurs only in the presence of meaningful relationships. 

  • in continual development of highly qualified staff utilizing evidence-based teaching practices and instruction.

  • that team collaboration and individualized planning for each student maximize student growth. 

  • the responsibility for a successful education is shared by the student, teachers, administrators, the Board, parents, and community working together as a team.  

  • that the learning environment needs to be safe, age appropriate, structured, and supportive of each student's learning and behavioral needs.
