Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of Upperman High School is to empower all students in a safe, challenging environment with skills of learning to achieve excellence in academics and become responsible members of society.

We believe...

  • Student learning is enhanced when multiple teaching strategies can be related to some real aspect in their own lives.
  • Every child should have equal opportunities for a quality education.
  • All students can learn when they share the responsibility for their learning and have adequate support and resources.
  • An effective instructional program empowers its students with the ability to think critically and make informed decisions using available resources.
  • Our teachers have the responsibility to teach and our students have a responsibility to learn.
  • A quality education is necessary for a rewarding and fulfilling life.
  • Students should develop an appreciation as well as a tolerance for races, cultures, and perspectives that are different from their own.
  • A school must have the necessary means to meet the needs of every student regardless of their learning abilities.
  • Education is a process whereby each student is provided a program of instruction that will provide knowledge and skills that will enable he/she to function in our society as an individual and as a productive citizen in a global society.
  • An education is possible for everyone especially when a partnership is formed between the school staff, parents, and the community.
