We believe all students have
the right to a safe, personal and nurturing environment where they can achieve
in academics, career preparation and personal development. We are committed to
providing a safe, personal and nurturing environment for all students. We
believe in a grace and strength-based approach for students to achieve in
academics, career preparation and personal development.
Our mission is to partner
with families and the community to foster student growth in academics and
social-emotional learning and executive functioning skills through our core
values: respect, responsibility and resilience.
RESPECT – We demonstrate a professional level of
respect by being mindful of others in the learning environments, using
appropriate language in the classroom and halls of our school, and accepting
each other's cultural and ethnic diversities. We show respect toward our
community by doing our part in keeping it clean. We believe respect fosters an
environment of trust, safety and well-being.
RESPONSIBILITY – It is our responsibility to provide an
environment that nurtures the growth and development of our students
academically and socially. Staff and students exhibit responsibility by taking
ownership of their learning and the learning environment of others. Staff and
students take pride in the important role they play in the school environment
which is demonstrated by the work they do.
RESILIENCE – We challenge ourselves to strive for excellence.
We do not give up! Mistakes are accepted and perseverance is expected. When
difficulties arise, staff and students push through. Students take time to
transition between the challenging situations to prepare to be mentally and
physically present for each class. Staff and students demonstrate patience with
each other and think before responding to situations which may be difficult.
