Mission Statement


We believe … 

  • All students can learn. 

  • We have collective responsibility for all students. 

  • Our school must address the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students and community.

  • In Professional Learning Communities, and through the work of Collaborative Teams, students will achieve at high levels. 

  • We must be culturally responsive to build relationships.

  • Diversity is a strength in creating a resilient, open-minded community of learners.



We inspire students to discover and pursue opportunities as they become innovative and productive global citizens.



Through collective responsibility and collaboration with peers, parents, and community members we will create a positive, respectful culture that sets high expectations, achievable goals, and a pathway to success for all students.
