Our Beliefs About Learning

We believe the best learning occurs…     

  • when positive relationships form the foundation for learning;
  • when students engage in high-level learning and access appropriate support; 
  • when students have an active role in their learning and in the school community;
  • in a culture of collaboration; 
  • when students and teachers extend their learning beyond the school;
  • in an environment of critical thinking, creativity, and innovation;
  • when students and staff are emotionally and physically safe.
