-Make meaningful contributions in a democratic society

Mission Statement

To create an inclusive environment where all students, teachers, non-certificated personnel, parents and administrators feel safe, secure and understood…truly feel valued as unique individuals.  In this environment, each can be free to learn while interacting caringly and positively with the commonalities and differences present in our diverse school community.

This will help our students to freely embrace diversity and differences as desirable traits and as strengths and uniqueness of our country, as they confidently become contributing members and leaders in our increasingly diverse society locally, nationally, and globally.
