School Philosophy Statement

Trust, kindness, and respect must govern us all in this educational community. Our community includes students, parents, staff, school board members, and citizens. Working together and taking risks are part of a successful educational community. Our school is a learning environment in which each person can grow. Each person has unique developmental needs which the school addresses. We encourage academic excellence. We prepare students to be well-educated citizens, capable of participating in a changing and interdependent world. A successful school community celebrates the success of each individual. This philosophy statement is a "Living Document", open to revision according to its own standards.
