School Belief Statements
Meaningful learning occurs when individual needs are addressed in a safe and nurturing environment through relevant curriculum.
Students are most successful when they are independent readers and confident problem solvers.
Teachers are most effective as professionals when they have forums in which to discuss and collaborate on school issues, so that school-based decisions are made concerning behavior management, teaching practices, and student achievement.
Learning is enhanced in an environment of mutual respect and open communication among administration, teachers, parents, and students.
