We believe our children learn best when:

  • They are in a classroom environment that nurtures their individual differences while challenging their intellectual and creative capacities
  • They have an active role in their own learning
  • They develop a joy of learning that transcends the classroom

We believe the role of parents:

  • Is to establish partnerships between all members of the school community
  • Is to create an environment that is conducive to learning and supportive of the school(s)
  • Is to advocate and communicate for all children

We believe the role of the community:

  • Is to provide support to the schools as they prepare students to be productive members of society
  • Is to actively participate in the governance, activities, and educational programs of the schools
  • Is to challenge our schools to be excellent and our students to achieve

We believe the role of teachers:

  • Is to be a role model, creating a nurturing environment which inspires students to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be successful lifelong learner
  • Is to create a challenging learning environment which acknowledges individuality, accommodates learning differences and promotes a sense of community
  • Is to make sense of learning by building connections between curriculum areas

We believe an excellent education:

  • Is the foundation for future success and motivates individuals to be lifelong learners
  • Acknowledges individuality and diversity
