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.
