Beliefs

Our beliefs reflect the values forged over a quarter century in the crucible of our dynamic school community.  These beliefs reflect our commitment to honoring diversity, developing social responsibility, and implementing a child-centered philosophy of education. 

We believe that:

  • Student learning must be the focus of all school activity.
  • In order to ensure a quality program, staff must be provided with time for professional dialogue, professional development, and collaboration.
  • Students learn best in small groups with differentiated instruction that caters to individual strengths and needs.
  • The Family has a major influence on a child’s learning.
  • Students can learn, have the right to learn, and should have equal access to the curriculum.
  • The school curriculum must reflect the highest standards and expectations for our pupils.
  • Each student is unique and can become a responsible and self-motivated individual who respects him/herself, others, and the environment.
  • A curriculum that reflects historical and contemporary issues and events will stimulate a child’s natural curiosity while developing the life-skills necessary to   succeed in our global community.
  • Successful cooperation among all stakeholders, with open communication and respect for each other’s diversity, will result in improved student achievement.
  • In order to enrich our educational environment, our school must utilize diverse resources from parents, the community, and business partners.
  • The optimal learning environment is clean, safe, and aesthetically pleasing.  This provides students with a feeling of ownership and pride.
  • Every effort should be made to reflect the diversity of our city in the make-up of our school’s population.
  • Learning should be fun and engaging!
