We provide culturally relevant, engaging, student-centered, standards-based instruction that fosters college and career readiness. Our mission is to promote educational and social equity throughout our school; to support foundational skill-building while providing grade-level instruction; to facilitate intellectual and social growth; to rekindle the joy and love of learning; to communicate and collaborate, encouraging dialogue among our constituencies; to nurture social and emotional wellness; to provide a safe, accepting, and supportive setting so that students have the opportunity to creatively explore and clarify their own beliefs and values; to take acceptable academic risks without judgment; and to think and speak for themselves.
