  • It is our responsibility to help prepare students to become productive citizens who are responsible and ready for the ‘real world.’

  • It is important to frequently recognize and celebrate successes.

  • Learning is a lifelong process.

  • We are a community of learners where all staff members take responsibility for each student’s success.

  • Teachers have an obligation to help students explore their personal strengths, interests, and abilities.

  • Education includes instruction in character and leadership.

  • It is our responsibility to maintain a safe, positive learning environment.
