Beliefs

Our Core Beliefs about Learning and Discipline:

Student learning is the main priority of our school.

Student success in school depends on strong reading, writing, and math skills.

Each student is valued as an individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.

The staff is committed to continuous improvement to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.

Curriculum and instructional practices incorporate a variety of learning activities to accommodate differences in the learning styles and abilities of our students.

Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school mission.

Students should be responsible for solving their own problems with adult guidance.

Students should learn that breaking rules results in the loss of privileges.

Students should face consequences instead of punishment whenever possible.

Preserving and/or enhancing a student's self-respect and dignity is crucial to a successful disciplinary action.

Students should not see the adult as the source of their problem during a disciplinary action.

Discipline should be considered an opportunity for personal growth rather than a bad thing that should never happen.
