Our Beliefs

Students are our greatest natural resource, our hope for the future, and our top priority.

Students are unique humane beings with varying social, physical, emotional, academic, and vocational needs.

Students learn best when they respect themselves, their teachers, their school, and their community; therefore, all stakeholders (faculty, staff, parents, community) must partner together to ensure a safe, supportive environment.

Students perform best when clear goals are set forth, standards are held high, and when they are challenged, motivated, encouraged, and praised.

Students should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches - innovative and tailored to meet and fulfill their individual needs.

Students should be educated by all school personnel to become self-directed, character-driven citizens.

All stakeholders in education should be actively involved and share responsibility in ensuring that students and the educational institution reach their fullest potential.

All educational programs - whether instructional, assessment, or disciplinary - should be well-defined, supported, and reinforced.
