Guiding Principles:

  • Mindfulness, manners, kindness, and respect are essential in our community and help create a positive learning environment
  • Spending time in nature, during play time, science class, hikes, PE,  and field trips such as kayaking, helps develop physical skills and life skills, as well as an interconnectedness with the Earth and all living things
  • Encouraging a growth mindset among students produces students with grit, motivation, and a love of learning
  • Educational practices that broaden and enrich student experience with a range of creative, outreach, and applied learning activities in local and world communities are transformative
  • Academics with clear curricular, instructional, and learning outcomes prepare students for the next educational challenge  
  • Curriculum that includes an essential knowledge base, as well as new topics and ideas, helps develop critical thinking skills among students, encouraging lifelong learning
