Challenges and Opportunities
Social Emotional Well Being
Ensuring the social emotional well being of our school community: our students, their families, teachers and administrators for both Covid and non-Covid related issues.
Creating pathways for all our students to achieve academic excellence. Academic excellence is not determined by grades or standardize tests alone. Academic excellence embodies the total academic experience.
