What We Believe
We believe that students need to have good feelings about themselves. They need to feel capable, worthwhile, and appreciated. Their self-esteem influences their ability to relate with others and learn successfully.
We believe that positive self-esteem and appropriate behavior are best promoted by making our expectations clear, consistent, and achievable, while praising acceptable behavior.
We believe that if students are provided a caring atmosphere, quality instruction, and the opportunity to experience success they will enjoy and accept their responsibility for learning.
We believe that a learning program designed to meet the individual needs of all students will help prepare them to face the changes and challenges of the future.
We believe that the home is of primary importance to the educational development of each child. We want to work closely with the parents and/or guardians to provide the best environment and encouragement for each child.
We believe that using the latest in information, materials, and technology will help us to become better educators and give our students the best chance to succeed academically.
We believe that students will benefit from being involved in some aspect of extra-curricular activities. We feel that those involved assume pride and ownership in the school and can learn positive habits that they may not be able to learn otherwise.
