Academic Success

Academic growth and achievement is the core purpose of public education. Our students undertake studies in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, physical education and health, second languages, and the arts.

Student achievement is reported on by a variety of means:

  • At the Primary level measures of meeting expectations for age or grade level help to measure progress and achievement.
  • At the Intermediate level measures of expectations for grade level are combined with letter grades to mark progress.

We realize that student attitudes and habits about learning are as equally important as academic ability in reaching individual potential

Plan for success! Expect Success! Achieve success!

  • set goals for yourself
  • Use your planner; time management works!

Solve Problems in Peaceful Ways

Exercise Democratic Rights and Responsibilities

  • know that rights and responsibilities go together

These aspects are integrated throughout all our academic programs and are the key to developing a positive school climate. Social skills are learned and have to be taught and practiced. This responsibility is shared not only among teaching staff, but also among families and the community as well.
