Our focus on the continuous improvement of student learning creates a rich and diverse learning environment at all levels of our educational organization filled with innovation, collaboration, and excellence. As a result, our students master rigorous grade level standards while developing core thinking and learning competencies and engaging in powerful, real-world learning experiences necessary for success in college, careers, and as global citizens. Our students develop essential knowledge and learning skills in all disciplines necessary to become ethical citizens who are innovative and influential leaders in their world through:
Effective Oral and Written Communication:
Students effectively articulate thoughts and ideas, communicate with purpose and express ideas clearly and effectively to communicate within and across cultures, and synthesize a variety of sources using oral, written, and presentation skills.
Critical Thinking and Problem Solving:
Students develop meaningful questions to guide inquiry, create, refine, analyze, and evaluate original and innovative ideas, and apply abstract knowledge to solve problems and execute solutions.
Students participate effectively and respectfully in productive teams that represent diverse perspectives, assume shared responsibility for collaborative work, value the individual contributions made by each team member, and seek opportunities to collaborate with others in personal, work, and community contexts.
Leadership and Innovation:
Students inspire others by demonstrating integrity and ethical behavior with the interest of the larger community in mind; demonstrate leadership skills by taking the initiative to solve problems or by seeking better solutions and reflecting on the successes and mistakes that comprise leadership and innovation.
Accessing and Analyzing Information:
Students access, analyze, process, and evaluate rapidly changing sources of information, media and technology in order to discern new challenges and opportunities.
We are proud of the many achievements of our students in academics, the arts, and athletics and encourage our students to discover their individual talents and interests through participation in our extracurricular offerings and community service experiences. Our schools foster an environment focused on respect, responsibility and compassion for others to maximize academic engagement and achievement for all students.
