District mission

Ensuring access to a superior education through inspired leadership among parents, teachers, administrators, and staff, allowing students to achieve their full potential to participate in opportunities in their community.

Greatest challenge

Providing our students with the instruction necessary to compete at a world-class level is a goal we continue to address. Passing is no longer our standard for success. We are committed to having our students receive mastery level scores.
