We believe that:

Students’ learning needs are the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school district.
Students learn in different ways and must be provided with a variety of meaningful instructional approaches to support their learning and actively engage them in solving problems.
The success of instructional practice is measured through continual evaluation of student achievement.
Students learn to make appropriate decisions given a professional, supportive, and challenging learning environment.
Success requires vision, risk-taking, and responsibility.

All people need to feel accepted, safe, and valued.
Students, school and district staff, parents and community share the responsibility for advancing the school district’s mission.

It is important that all members of the school community are committed to life-long learning.
Excellence is achievable, measurable, and always worth the investment.
People achieve when expectations are high, and when effort and perseverance toward excellence are encouraged, supported, recognized and celebrated.
