Belief Statement

We believe that:
  • All staff must share an understanding of and commitment to the instructional goals of the school system.
  • Parents must embrace education as a high priority
  • Because the parent is a child's first and most important teacher, the home environment has a direct impact upon a student's success in school.
  • Parents, teachers, and students have the obligation to create and maintain safe schools.
  • Goals must exist for every student in terms of individual ability
  • Students and parents share responsibility in establishing and working toward achieving student goals.
  • Teachers must provide clear purpose and relevance for all learning activities.
  • Instructional strategies must reflect student needs and provide for student choices and diversity.
  • Effective education provides frequent opportunities for problem solving and critical thinking.
  • Assessment is a tool for improving instruction.
  • A broad range of assessment tools should be used in monitoring student progress.
  • The first priority of school administrators is the instructional program.
  • The school faculty has the right and obligation to contribute to instructional leadership decisions
  • It is the responsibility of the community to provide the necessary fiscal and human resources for the effective and safe educations of its students.
