Our Beliefs as Educators:

 

  • We believe that all students, regardless of home language/culture or special needs status can succeed in our school community.  It is our responsibility as educators to create differentiated instructional environments that nurture and respect students’ innate genius and supportively challenge their areas of weakness. 
  • We believe that bilingualism is an asset that is increasingly necessary in a global economy. We believe that all students should have the ability to speak, read and write in more than one language.
  • We believe in culturally responsive methodologies and content which give schooling a deeper, more meaningful, relevant place in student lives. 
  • We believe families are our partners. We view each home and heritage culture as having intrinsic value, and unique strengths that when thoughtfully and appropriately integrated into the school setting, significantly strengthen the academic environment.
  • We believe in data driven-instruction. By analyzing student data and teaching students to apply effective effort, they gain self-confidence, and the character strength to become smarter with practice.
