We BELIEVE every person can learn, and every person learns in different ways. We believe that all learners must experience success. Effective education embraces the total child. We respect differences in others. We respect the rights of others. Responsible learners exhibit fairness, respect, and honesty. Learning is a lifelong process. Community represents students, staff, families, volunteers, and businesses. Learners need opportunities to practice life skills such as goal setting, cooperating with others, solving problems, and decision-making. People learn by taking academic risks in a safe, caring environment. We must all take responsibility for our own learning.
