(Character) We will: Establish high expectations, teach our students to be self-directed, lifelong learners who collaborate, think creatively, communicate effectively, think critically, and engage with rigorous coursework. In turn, we will provide academic support at every level, celebrate growth and effort, and be accountable for our results. (Scholarship) We will: Develop respectful relationships with students and their families, create and encourage extracurricular opportunities and participation, plan and deliver engaging learning experiences, and encourage friendship. (Memories) We will: Encourage ownership of our learning environment, seek curriculum-relevant service projects, and partner with our community and its leaders to help our students gain an understanding of global citizenship.
