  • Provide a welcome setting where students feel safe, both emotionally and physically
  • Dedicate ourselves to applying best instructional practices
  • Encourage, challenge and empower students
  • Ensure that all students experience success
  • Model and promote positive character traits
  • Create an engaging, learning environment where successes are celebrated
  • Collaborate as teams to implement our vision
