SCHOOL GOALS

Students can drive their own learning.    

  • Teachers actively include student choice in making decisions in the classroom and learning environment.     
  • Piloting teachers will implement and use a consistent method for supporting students with goal setting, learner profiles and measuring progress across grades.
  • Teachers will develop and increase understanding of personalized learning and student agency, including growth mindset.

Students perceive and experience physical, intellectual, and emotional safety (PIES) within the school atmosphere.

Students feel a connection between their learning environment and their community.
