P77K 2018-2019

Vision

The vision of our school lies in the belief that each student learns differently. Therefore, each student is given access to the standards at their current level and at different entry points. We are charged with fostering an environment that offers each student the opportunity to develop strong character, become responsible citizens, be career-ready, and achieve their own academic excellence.

Mission

Our mission is deeply rooted in identifying how students learn best, and by providing each of our students with a firm foundation of learning within a supportive, nurturing, and caring environment that is respectful for all. We present our students with a full rigorous curriculum that gives access to general education programs. Our goal is to foster life-long learners who will reach their highest potential in school, at home, in their communities, and into adulthood.

Students at P77K are provided with instruction in Visual Arts, Music, Technology, and an interactive Culinary Arts program. These experiences, as well as a variety of other community-based learning experiences are tiered to support their individual needs, provide students with the opportunity to strengthen their vocational and employability skills. These skills will allow each student to grow to become active members in their school, in their community, and within their own lives.

Our strongest belief is that success comes in “cans,” not “cannots.”

Theory of Action/Instructional Focus

During common planning time, if we collaborate when modifying our standards-aligned curricula, integrate instructional shifts in our planning, and create meaningful assessment tools, then the results of the analyzed assessments will be utilized to further target students’ individual learning needs which will increase the students ability to more deeply demonstrate the acquisition of their targeted goals.
