Vision: Each of our graduates will be able to demonstrate their proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, mathematics, critical thinking, problem solving, technology, and civic responsibility based on national and international standards. We educate the whole child and provide a comprehensive education that includes: English language arts, mathematics, social studies, the sciences, the fine and applied arts, technology, health, physical education, and world languages.

District Core Commitments

We believe it is important for students, staff, parents, and the community to work together to make sure that we pass on knowledge, wisdom, values, and beliefs from one generation to another. To that end, we have established a series of broad priorities. These commitments are intended to guide the strategic direction, budgetary priorities, and decisions at the district, school, and classroom levels.

  1. Core Commitment 1: Fiscal Responsibility - Our fiscal resources are purposefully targeted to maintain and enhance a high-quality education and the core values of the school community.
  2. Core Commitment 2: Proficient Students – All students demonstrate their proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, mathematics, problem solving, critical thinking, and technology, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary for success in post-secondary education, careers, and citizenship within a knowledge-based society.
  3. Core Commitment 3: Rigorous Curriculum – Our students are challenged by and engaged in a rigorous curriculum with academic, career, fine art, and co-curricular learning experiences.
  4. Core Commitment 4: Highly Effective Educators - Our students are instructed by highly-effective educators who regularly collaborate to adjust and refine their instructional practices based on student needs.
  5. Core Commitment 5: Use of Data – our educators and community use data and student assessment information purposefully to make informed decisions at the classroom, department, school, and district level.
  6. Core Commitment 6: Personalized Learning Environments - Our students are educated in a personalized learning environment that support each student’s academic, career, and personal growth and that maintains a small school culture in which each student is known well by an adult.
  7. Core Commitment 7: Partnerships - Our teachers, staff, and administrators involve our parents and the community as partners in the development of students’ proficiency and effectively engage with parents in two-way communication regarding student learning.
