Education is a shared responsibility of the administration and faculty, students, parents, and the school community.
A safe and secure environment that is marked by respect for the rights of others and acceptance of personal responsibility is conducive to effective learning.
Education must encompass the development of the whole individual: academic, aesthetic, creative, social, physical, and emotional.
Students are individuals whose learning is influenced by age, prior knowledge, background, experiences, personality, and physiology.
The learning environment and educational process should recognize and accommodate different abilities, learning styles, and interests.
Education is most effective when the learner is actively engaged in the learning process.
Education should provide meaningful and relevant experiences that are valuable beyond the classroom.
The students' school experience should foster self-esteem and self-confidence, which are integral components of the successful learner.
Education encourages each student to develop positive character traits and assist them in understanding themselves and how their values relate to the world in which they live.
Education should foster independent thinking to encourage creativity, thoughtful decision-making, critical analysis, and an appreciation and understanding of differences in opinion.
The school experience should promote positive interpersonal relationships where students can work cooperatively with a partner, group, or team to become caring, sharing individuals, aware of the concern of others.
The establishment of realistic, yet challenging, expectations and the learner's responsibility for their achievement promotes excellence.
Education should encourage responsible citizenship and global awareness.
Education should instill in students a desire for lifelong learning.
Well-planned change and purposeful institutional and personal renewal will lead to continuous improvement and enable the educational community to adapt to a rapidly changing world.
