Our Beliefs


Student learning is the primary goal of the school

Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions affecting the school.

Parent, students, educators, school board and councils, and the entire community are responsible for implementing and achieving the school’s goals.

Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs and may require special services or resources.

A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.

A student’s self-esteem is enhanced through developing and sharing mutual respect among students and staff.

Challenging expectations and a supportive environment increase individual student performance.

Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.

All students can learn, achieve, and succeed when provided developmentally appropriate learning activities.

Cultural diversity increases student understanding of different people and cultures.
