We will continue to use our community as a valuable tool to enhance the education of our students. We will continue to uphold the highest standards for our faculty and staff, striving to employ the most highly qualified personnel available. We will also continue to base the core academic instruction on the state curriculum standards. Instructional strategies will be varied and will include technology implemented to ensure that all students are motivated to learn. We will provide students with ample opportunities to master the content. We will consistently meet the expectations of our local, state, and federal accountability models.
