  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual characteristics
  • Student learning is the main focus of the school
  • Students need to demonstrate their understanding of essential knowledge and skills, and also need to be actively involved in solving problems and producing quality work
  • A safe, clean, and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning
  • Students and parents need to take an active part in the classroom setting
  • Subject areas should include different learning activities so that all students are comfortable in the classroom setting
