The AdvancED site includes artifacts that support the work of our school. Each tab represents one of the 5 AdvancED Standards for Quality Schools. SMS is beginning its third year as a Professional Learning Community. We have established our fundamental purpose to be "Student Learning." All decisions related to curriculum, instruction and assessment are made with the intent to best support students and their learning. We have a five year plan to support a fully functional PLC. In many ways we have exceeded our expectations and in other ways we have struggled to meet our desired outcomes. The one thing we recognize is that this is a journey.
