  1. Continue to create, refine and document our project-based learning practices with a focus on key knowledge, understandings and skills from each subject area, technology integration, interdisciplinary themes, and real world connections
  2. Ensure that all students have ownership in creating and monitoring a unique set of instruction and assessment experiences, in the areas of academic, social, physical and behavioral learning, appropriate for them as individuals with varied strengths, readiness, interests, and motivations.
  3. Deliberately develop and measure the habits of mind found in our mission statement: autonomy, collaboration, communication (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), creativity, critical thinking, cultural competency, innovative problem solving, motivation to learn, perseverance, reflection, self-control, through all learning opportunities.
  4. Enhance the effectiveness and creativity of our collegial work and learning by connecting all work to the school mission, performing mindfulness practices, and increasing self-reflection and self-assessment among all staff.
