·      We believe that establishing and maintaining high expectations and a commitment to excellence are critical components to successful students.

·      We believe a safe and orderly environment insures an atmosphere that promotes teaching and learning.

·      We believe that all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.

·      We believe that modeling and reinforcing basic values such as respect, trustworthiness, caring, fairness, citizenship, cultural awareness and responsibility is an integral part of education.

·      We believe that each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.

·      We believe each student has the ability to learn and be successful and must assume responsibility for his/her own potential.

·      We believe students, teachers, administrators, the Board, parents and community members working together as a team to build a strong foundation for learning share the responsibility for a successful education.

·      We believe co-curricular and extracurricular programs help prepare our students for success with life, college preparatory and workforce skills.

·      We believe all students have the right to an education, but not the right to interfere with the education of others.
