We provide a welcoming community by building relationships and seeking to understand every member in our community on a personal level. Here, we want to know our students and their families—and we care deeply about those relationships. In order to provide the highest quality education, we have to know who are students are, what motivates them, what goals they have, and what makes them happy. With that knowledge, we can provide a welcoming community focused on student success. This philosophy extends to our staff as we work to know each other at the same level. This allows us to enter into difficult conversations when necessary, with the knowledge that we truly care about each other and our students and families.
We provide students with a safe place to express themselves, to explore their passions, and to make decisions that have impact on their own future. We provide students with a safe space to help them understand who they are. Knowledge about oneself is as important to a bright and happy future as anything else that can be taught in a school and often students need a place to do this without fear of teasing, shame, and the underlying unhappiness and discomfort.
