Habits of Mind: Do your best work all the time.

This mind set is similar to striving for accuracy. More than that, it means continuing to work hard to improve proficiency and reach one’s potential. We need to teach students that they do not have to settle for second best and that in some things average just is not good enough. Reaching high goals usually requires our best work and a habit of doing our best all the time.

Mission Statement

our mission is to promote student success through a high quality education. For every child to succeed, we must hold students and ourselves to high expectations. Only the courageous pursuit of excellence will lead to success.
