The Mission for Gordon K8 Achievement Academy is to adequately prepare our students to become motivated, educated, and empowered to achieve total success in meeting the expectations through Academics, Attendance, Achievement, Attitude. and Alternatives for ultimate success from Kindergarten-8th grade.

The vision for Gordon K8 Achievement Academy is that our school will be a center for providing students with a second chance academically and socially in order to be successful throughout the remainder of their educational career.

As a GK8 Student, my responsibility is to learn new skills, to demonstrate ownership for responsibility, to show respect, and to learn how to live up to all of the expectations that have been set before me; so that I can be productive.


As a GK8 teacher, my responsibility is to create a peaceful learning environment and plan powerful learning experiences, which will ultimately guide my students success.
