We embrace collaboration among both adults and students. We value positive relationships as central to building and maintaining a safe learning environment. We hold high expectations for all students, both academically and behaviorally, which are clearly communicated, consistently modeled, and positively reinforced. We support every student in achieving his or her potential and preparing for future opportunities and active citizenship. We offer a Common Core State Standards-based curriculum that is student-centered, culturally responsive, and relevant. We model teamwork, collaboration, collegiality, democratic governance, and a commitment to lifelong learning. We partner with families and community stakeholders to nurture the intellectual, social, and emotional development of our students.
