Striving for Excellence!

Our Core Values

While not an uncommon profession, teaching calls for people of uncommon dedication and service, who reach for excellence in the profession of teaching and learning. High expectations are the norm. We challenge all of our students to acquire a foundation of knowledge and academic skills and achieve to their highest potential.

• Students First… Education is a process that begins at birth. We strive to develop individual excellence within a learning environment that reflects and nurtures intellectual, social, emotional, physical, and aesthetic growth of each and every student.

Results Matter… The pursuit of greater knowledge and more powerful thinking demands hard work, perseverance, and commitment. The partnerships among families, students, staff, and community are characterized by mutual commitment and collaborative effort.

We are One… Varied beliefs and backgrounds strengthen a public education system. We respect cultural diversity and differences within our school system, which contribute to a better society for all human beings.

Actions Speak Louder than Words… Our actions are distinguished by the highest standards of personal behavior, including trust, honesty, fairness, integrity, and mutual respect, which are reflected in all we do.

Continuous Improvement—Everyone, Every Way, Every Day…Our District, its systems, and processes will be subject to continual review, reflection, and improvement. Our decisions will be data driven. We will be recognized for results-focused management by fact and known for a long-range outlook in planning for the future.
