We believe in the endless quest for excellence. Excellence cannot be compromised. We impose upon ourselves a obligation to reach beyond the minimal. None of us can settle for less than our best, and we can never stop trying to surpass what has already been achieved.
- We believe in unity and diversity. We believe that diversity strengthens society and should be honored and protected, but also acknowledged as a challenge. True unity is more than self-interest; it results when values and ideas are shared. We look to the unifying force of these beliefs as a source of energy to brighten the future of our school and all that depend on it. For our school to succeed, we must operate in a climate of openness and trust, in which each of us freely grants others the same respect, cooperation, and decency we seek for ourselves.
- We believe in progressive thinking and innovation. We promote growth through seeking new ideas and searching for new information. We will continuously seek knowledg eand we must think creatively and continuously pursue new ideas to achieve uncommon breakthroughs.
- We believe in continuous improvement. Continuous quality improvement is our way of life; it is the process we will use to achieve our vision. The school endures and prospers only by moving forward. We must anticipate change, shape it to our purpose , and act as its agents.
- We believe school improvement is primarily people improvement. Significant, lasting school improvement cannot be separated from staff development. Commitment to continued growth should be expected of all people and all programs supported by school resources.
