We are committed to the continual improvement of every student's academic and social performance by:

  • Having high expectations for all students
  • Differentiating instruction
  • Providing educators with tools to identify gaps in student instruction and achievement in order to implement programs/strategies that will address specific skill deficits
  • Ensuring all educators are accountable for student success
  • Effective utilization of resources (time, staff and funding)
  • Growing teacher leaders
  • Advocating for collaboration among all staff
  • Maintaining a high level of professional development
  • Increasing home and community awareness/involvement
