STRONGER TOGETHER

Our Vision of Learning

In full support of our district mission and vision, we at SCC High School are committed to...

Creating a learning experience built on creativity, choice, efficiency, and engagement, resulting in high-achieving and creative problem-solvers who take intellectual risks to discover the world around them and maximize their potential.

**WE PUT STUDENTS FIRST**

What does "students first" mean?

  • We stand in the gap between what is and what could be.
  • We find solutions - we don't blame kids.
  • We circle around them in support - always.
  • We freely give what they need.
  • We recognize their poor choices and guide them to make better choices.
  • We do things that are inconvenient for the adults because it's what's best for the students.
  • We try the next thing because we never let them run out of chances.
  • We provide physical, mental, and emotional safety - no matter what.
  • We model what we expect.
  • We love all of them.

If not us then who?

We Have the Power to...

  • SERVE others
  • show EMPATHY
  • LIFT others UP
