Our School Mission and Vision:Our focus is on instilling in our students a positive attitude toward learning and a commitment to acquiring the skills necessary to become independent and responsible adults. We develop students who exhibit a strong sense of self and personal heritage, while acknowledging and appreciating cultural diversity and exhibiting strong citizenship. We accomplish this with a collaborative and supportive culture where all members of the school community -- students, staff, parents, and the community at large, share in the responsibility and accountability for school success. Within this culture:
- The curriculum is challenging and meets rigorous standards.
- Our students are provided with the necessary academic and social scaffolds so that they can learn to access information and apply knowledge, both individually and cooperatively, in decision making and problem solving endeavors.
- We nurture an environment that is safe and secure, and is responsive to the overall needs of our school community -- students, staff, parents, and the community at large.
- Our instructional excellence is enhanced by our commitment to lifelong professional development and growth.
