We believe that all learners need to be rigorously challenged, that all learners need to be empowered with basic skills, technical proficiency, and critical thinking ability in order to become productive by pursuing career or college goals. Learners can fulfill this goal by meeting and exceeding state standards. We believe in the value of both individual effort and group effort.
We believe that our school needs to be a safe, caring place of learning: a place that recognizes the unique value of each person who studies or works in our midst. We seek to establish respect and responsibility in a safe learning environment.
We want to build and continually nurture a school climate that recognizes the importance of serious work and enjoyment: use of targeted professional development to enrich the learning environment.
