We Believe In...

    • Establishing small learning communities for all students enabling each student to be well-known by at least one adult, and providing a schedule that is both flexible and student-centered to maximize learning within each community.
    • Approaching teaching and learning with strategies that emphasize collaborative involvement among staff members.
    • Emphasizing a wide variety of teaching techniques, student learning activities, and a rigorous curriculum stressing the development of the whole child, meeting the needs of a diverse student population and addressing the developmental needs of the early adolescent.
    • Using a shared decision-making model wherein all decisions are made in the best interests of the students.
    • Teaching life-long learning skills with an emphasis on having all students master those skills.
    • Creating an environment where all students feel safe and secure and can experience the joy of learning.
    • Recognizing the staff as a valuable resource, given that, we believe an environment must exist where staff members feel valued and free to take risks in the pursuit of quality programs.
    • Recognizing that parental/guardian involvement and support are vital contributors to the student's success, we will provide opportunities for all parents/guardians to be involved in the learning process
