~Learning must be at the core of our daily lives to prepare us for citizenship in the 21st Century.
~Learning is life long for all members of our community.
~Students learn in different ways and, therefore, must be provided with opportunities that meet their individual needs.
~The ever changing needs of students require that professional development must be ongoing, based on research, aligned with district goals, and embedded in our daily work.
~The actions of the members of our learning community must provide students with the effective models of citizenship, thereby fostering students who are responsible, accountable, and respectful.
~A safe and caring learning environment is critical for the success of our students.
~Collaboration with and among students, staff, parents, and community is essential for continuous improvement.
~School pride in academics and all other activities should be shared with and among students, staff, parents, and community.
