Values and Beliefs
We believe:

• Students should be encouraged to become lifelong learners and problem solvers.
• Teaching should be innovative and creative in order to meet the unique needs and interests of students.
• All students are capable of learning and are responsible and accountable for their academic performance and for their own behavior.
• Students’ learning, attendance, and behavior improve when they are actively engaged in meaningful work.
• Students learn best in a safe, secure, and respectful environment.
• Schools must have a consistent discipline program, which fosters student self-discipline and teaches and models expected behaviors.
• Education is a shared responsibility. It is a partnership between home, school, and community.
