Four student-centered questions guide our curriculum, assessment, instruction, extracurricular offerings and professional development to create a structure of support to promote each student’s success:
1. What do we want all students to learn?
2. How will we know when they have learned it?
3. What will we do when they have learned it?
4. What will we do when they have not learned it?
We put students first by promoting each student’s success.
What we do:
Academic and student support programs
Professional development for educational staff
Compliance with local, federal and state student achievement data gathering and reporting
