RIGOR AND RELEVANCE FOR STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT* We are committed to excellence through a relevant, balanced, and equitable curriculum that promotes intellectual freedom and develops critical thinking skills through innovative and alternative educational approaches.*

A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY* We believe that students are best served when we employ the highest quality certificated, classified, and administrative staff members who embrace a culture of continuous learning and ongoing strategic, innovative, and relevant professional development.*

PARENTS AS PARTNERS – COMMUNITY COLLABORATION* We value the families in our community and believe that student success is our primary product.  The education of our children is a community responsibility, requiring families, businesses, and service organizations to provide support and to participate actively in our schools.*

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY* We believe that students thrive in a culture that supports the constitutional, patriotic foundations and religious freedoms of our democratic American society and promotes high, ethical standards of integrity, honesty, kindness, equality, and respect for all.*
