Challenging Academics: We believe academic success for all students begins by developing foundational skills in reading and mathematics. Through a systematic approach, we meet each student’s individual learning needs, and build environments that raise the bar for all students to think critically and take ownership of their learning.
Empower Students and Staff: We value the diverse perspectives of our students and encourage them to confidently use their voice. We value the expertise of our staff and seek their input into our educational programming.
Value Diversity: We view our diversity as an asset. We recognize that everyone brings unique, individual strengths to the school community. We develop opportunities for all stakeholders to see connections between themselves, the curriculum, and the district.
Whole-Child Focus: We support the development of the physical, mental and unique talents of our student population through extracurricular opportunities (PBIS, arts, athletics, and clubs). We prioritize the full scope of a child’s developmental needs and advance educational equity. Our whole child approach understands that students’ education and life outcomes are dependent upon their access to deeper learning opportunities in and out of school, as well as their school environment and relationships.
Emphasis on Relationships: We build healthy, strong relationships and care for each other. We treat others with courtesy, respect, and dignity. We view every interaction as an investment in improving relationships. We celebrate each other’s successes.
Community Allies: We value community partnerships and recognize that it takes a village to enact the mission of the ERESC and collectively WE (parents/guardians, faculty, staff and the broader community) can help students realize their potential and become good citizens.
Educational Environment: The educational environment must be safe, respectful, and guided by skilled administrators who focus on advancing teacher effectiveness and student achievement.
Partnerships: Parents and guardians are essential partners in providing students with a high-quality education.
