Core Beliefs

Our learning community includes students, parents, staff and the greater community as each shares in the responsibility for 

positive student outcomes. 

Positive relationships between all community members are essential to promote a respectful and compassionate environment for student learning.

Teaching students social skills and behavior expectations increases the opportunity for student success.

Acknowledging and celebrating student and teacher accomplishments is important.

Modeling, teaching and re-teaching are essential qualities to achieve student learning mastery.

Academic and behavior data is necessary to design and deliver instruction that addresses individual student needs. 

Providing academic and behavioral interventions is based on data and collaborative team decisions.

A tiered system of academic and behavioral supports is essential in order to meet all student needs.
