Our Core Values
Our schools are guided by the following set of values that drive our work:
We believe every member in our organization should be developed. Students should grow more in their application and synthesis. Staff should improve in their craft and have a better impact on the development of scholars. Leaders should grow in their abilities to manage in a positive direction. We constantly re-examine who we are and what we are doing to continue to grow and develop in every area of our organization.
We know our school does better (is stronger) when we collaborate productively. Each member looks out for the best interest of the other and actively seeks to build them up. We do what we say we are going to do. We know students thrive in healthy environment where adults are aligned in their words and collective actions.
We treat others as we wish to be treated. This should happen even when that person does not behave in the same manner. We ensure our actions show respect for ourselves. We show this through conducting ourselves positively and developing a strong self-image.
We show individual responsibility by caring for our belongings, planning ahead, and exhibiting self-control. We take ownership for our words and actions. We show collective responsibility through engaging in community service, activities impacting the world around us and making decisions in the best interest of others.
We believe that the impact of our work is only as strong as our results. This is reflected in academic data, behavioral conduct, and progress towards individual goals. We will put students first in everything we do, and we will achieve a level of academic performance that will prepare our students for success in high school, college and/or career of their choice.
