First day of School
September 7, 2017
We believe that our first responsibility is to our students and to their right to an education that prepares them to succeed in college. Our students will receive daily personalized support and enrichment in a safe and rigorous learning environment. We acknowledge that our students are our equal partners and empower them to make choices that affect their path to college.
Our second responsibility is to those who work with us and to their right to professional collaboration and leadership opportunities. Our staff will receive on-going support through a peer accountability system rooted in a reciprocal cycle of feedback. We acknowledge that our staff is invaluable to our success as an organization; we pledge to listen to their ideas and concerns.
Our third and final responsibility is to the families of our students where we work and their right to partner with us to shape our policies. Our families will receive convenient and consistent communication about our plans and the opportunity to voice their thoughts. We acknowledge that our school model must align with the values and needs of the community's changing population.
