Our vision also includes a school with dedicated staff who enjoy their work, where teacher voices are valued, and where they are supported to develop their craft as educators and leaders. We want to empower our teachers to focus on our students, understand students’ challenges, implement targeted programs and interventions, and use data inquiry to inform their work.
We will maintain a school environment that is safe and conducive to instruction and learning, where staff and students respect each other, celebrate diversity, and are willing to provide support to each other.
