OUR MISSION is to provide equal & quality educational opportunities for all students in preparation for their role in our changing democratic society, and changing world.
We believe that:
All people have infinite worth. A quality education evolves from a partnership of students, staff, family, and community that is equal and active. Seldom is anything ever accomplished without risk. K-12 education is the foundation of the lifelong learning process. The higher the expectation, the greater the achievement. Growth occurs as a result of changes and challenges. Each person is accountable for his or her actions. The family is the primary influence in the development of the child. Diversity enriches both the individual and society.
