Core Values

CURIOSITY

Our school community constantly asks “why.” We are on the look out to improve our world.   In order to always be forward thinking, we develop our curiosity, creativity, and confidence to push boundaries.  

 

EMPATHY

We understand that we all bring unique and diverse experiences to our community.  We work to ensure those experiences are heard and honored.  We assume positive intentions of others as we work together to build our community.

 

RISK TAKING

We know that to reach new levels of success and to develop new, creative ideas and solutions to problems, we must venture beyond what feels comfortable to us.  When we take risks, we have the opportunity to revise and reflect on our actions and push ourselves to new levels of thinking. 

 

 

 

 

Self-Awareness

We measure the effectiveness of our actions. We know ourselves and use that knowledge to ask for support when we need it. We use our understanding of our strengths and weaknesses to create plans of action to achieve our goals.

RESILIENCE

We learn from our challenges and mistakes, and use them to better position ourselves for success in the future.
