What Every Family Should Know
The staff, students, and parents of Roberto Clemente School 8 promote unity by celebrating diversity in culture, knowledge and experience. Our school community and our community partners work together with a common focus of doing what is best for ALL students to meet academic, social, emotional and behavioral needs. As a team, we use data to identify areas in need of improvement and focus instruction on strengthening those areas. We believe that instilling HOPE in our students and striving for high standards will drive us to reach our fullest potential. The Roberto Clemente staff incorporates the Habits of Work and Learning(HOWLS) into every day routines and instructional practices.
