Core Values

Compassion:  We learn to show compassion through being kind and considerate and showing concern for the well-being of others.  As compassionate individuals, we believe that everyone has something valuable to offer and understand that no one likes being left out or misunderstood.  We understand and accept the differences that make each of us unique and special.  We embrace those differences!  We are also active listeners and listen with our minds and hearts so that we can truly understand others.

 

Teamwork:  We believe that “Together is better”.  Teamwork is the process of working collaboratively with a group of people to achieve a common goal and come up with the best possible solution.  When we work collaboratively, members of the group can use their individual strengths in order to better the outcome and achieve the goal set, at the highest level possible.  When working together as a team, we learn to respect differences, get along well with others and learn from one another.

 

Leadership:  As leaders we all do what is right even when no one is looking.  Leaders lead through their words and their actions, and take risks when necessary.  They make positive choices that impact themselves and the people around them.  Leaders make plans, set goals, and benchmark until their final goal is met.

 

Curiosity:  We believe that curiosity is the key that propels our students to question and explore the world around them.  Curiosity and creativity foster the inquiry process and the desire for individuals to learn new things and seek solutions to problems.   Inquisitiveness enhances engagement and enthusiasm and allows individuals to be amazed with their newly acquired knowledge.

 

Perseverance:  At times we are confronted with challenges.  However, we believe in ourselves and never give up.  We work through the adversity to complete tasks and achieve success.  We embrace productive struggle to further develop our “growth mindset” and explore the endless possibilities regarding the world around us.
