School Goals

2015-2016

1.    Rigorous Instruction: We will continue to focus our growth on using non-fiction sources to create evidence-based writing pieces that inform and persuade.

2.    Supportive Environment (Math):  We will improve our students' ability, with the help of their parents, to track their own progress towards their learning targets.

3.    Strong Family and Community Ties:  We will increase our parents' ability to offer academic support at home; by offering more workshops and events designed to instruct parents in Common Core Standard-Based expectation, curricular goals, student learning targets, assessments, and supports for specific subgroups of learners.
