Educational philosophy

  1. Students' learning needs should be the chief priority and primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.
  2. Students need not only demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills, but also need to be actively involved in solving problems and producing quality work as well as applying their learning in meaningful contexts.
  3. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
  4. Challenging expectations increase individual student performance.
  5. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs; therefore, students should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to accommodate differences in learning styles.
  6. Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission.
  7. The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.
