School Beliefs

All students can learn and be successful.

Initiatives are essential to assist all students in mastering challenging state and

national standards.

In high performing schools teachers are highly qualified; teachers, students, and

parents are held accountable for maximum achievement on all mandated assessments.

Students are actively engaged in the learning process through differentiated instructional

practices, cooperative learning and the use of technology.

High academic expectations in all endeavors are established for each student subgroup.

Initiatives are in place for students who need remediation or special accommodations.

Collaboration, communication and mutual respect among students, teachers, parents and

community stakeholders are vital in high-performing schools.

Rigorous and challenging state curriculum standards and assessments are the cornerstones

of research-based and data-driven classroom instruction.

In a high-performing school the principal is the instructional leader, but shared

decision-making processes are essential.

Teachers are involved in the selection of high quality professional development.

Academic and behavioral successes are recognized and celebrated.

Student learning is supported by effective policies and procedures such as grading,

assessment, attendance, promotion and discipline (PBIS).

Benchmarks are in place for frequent monitoring of teaching and learning.
