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.
