family and community, is to provide a nurturing environment where students grow and thrive, value life-long learning and are prepared to succeed in an ever-changing world.
Everyone should be intellectually and creatively challenged to the highest level.
Students should see learning as a life-long process.
Students should have the opportunity to be successful through individual, cooperative and competitive efforts.
Students must learn basic academic and social skills and how to competently apply them in varied environments.
Students should learn effective critical thinking skills and problems solving strategies.
Students learn best in a safe, positive, disciplined and supportive environment.
Students must have opportunity to develop strong character.
Emotional well-being is essential for optimum learning.
Learning is enhanced when a partnership between the student, family, school and community exists.
School and community must support the family in providing effective pre-school learning experiences.
