Our school culture, like many others, is based on the importance of safety, respect, and responsibility. These cannot be just ideas. Our mission is to support young people, many of whom are already struggling with adversity, to become safe citizens, ready to participate in our society aware of their responsibilities to others, and capable of demonstrating respect. These efforts are undermined when the institutions surrounding them do not.
We will continue to educate ourselves and our students in our shared history no matter how uncomfortable and difficult that might be. Further, as an educational community, we commit to continuing to make equity a priority by routinely reviewing our practices to ensure they align with our values as a school.
In grateful partnership,
