Maximize student achievement by cultivating: critical thinking skills, innovative instructional practices and a collaborative school, home, and community partnership

We believe student achievement is maximized when:

1. The self-worth of each child is nurtured within a diverse and inclusive environment 
2. Students are engaged in a rigorous, culturally relevant and innovative learning experience
3. Educators apply result-driven instructional practices
4. Teachers and staff are engaged in continuous professional development
5. Parents, students, staff and community collaborate
