    • Our mutual responsibility as parents, teachers, staff, and administrators is to collaborate as partners in the education of each child. 
    • We encourage student ownership and accountability for learning and personal growth.
    • Our curriculum and instruction promotes mastery of rigorous standards, problem-solving, collaboration, and independent thinking. 
    • We provide opportunities for all students to be successful with grade-level curriculum through the use of technology and accessible materials. 
    • We acknowledge, value, and encourage diversity as a dynamic strength, beneficial to all. 
    • Our continuous improvement is based on constant reflection, openness to change, and high expectations for all.
    • We challenge each child to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and ethically in order to become productive citizens and life-long learners.
