In addition, Norco Elementary's vision statement embraces their commitment to ensuring the success of all students in the community. Their vision statement states that: We, the stakeholders of Norco Elementary School, foster relationships that allow us to effectively communicate and collaborate with each other in order to provide a safe, nurturing, and positive learning experience. We create a challenging learning environment that encourages success through appropriate differentiated instruction for individual differences and learning styles. Our school sets high social and academic standards which allow students to acquire the skills necessary to be life-long learners and problem solvers in the evolving twenty-first century (NES Brag Book,
The New York City Department of Education vision is that education is the committed to working collaboratively with parents, families, educators and communities to improve student achievement, and ensure that every child graduates from high school prepared for college, a career and a future as a productive adult (www.nycenet.edu). Each school in the NYC Department of education is responsible for the creation of their vision or mission. Walt Whitman Middle School mission statement affirms that” its mission is to create an environment that emphasizes academic excellence and fosters lifelong
As mentioned in my post, our school does not have its’ own vision statement rather there is one vision representative of the district. I certainly agree that it is beneficial for teachers to highlight how the school is striving to achieve its’ vision and it is essential to provide indicators of those goals for each grade or department level. For a vision to be achieved, constituents need to understand what actions they should perform to help the community achieve it. Additionally, I noticed both of our visions focused on, “... helping students to become productive members of society…”. The vision of my district is as follows: “The Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District educates and empowers our community of individual learners to be successful citizens of the world.” Both visions emphasize students becoming an integral part of society. I was curious: How does your school prepare students to participate in society through lessons or school initiatives? Following your inquiry into the company and school’s visions, how do you foresee the district designing class experiences to achieve its’
This mission, to me, means that The University of St. Thomas is committed to their students. It shows that the college truly cares about their students and their success. Not only does the staff want all of the students to graduate from St. Thomas but, also become a better person while they are there. They want the students to become smarter, not only in knowledge of books, but also in life. The goal is to create well rounded students who can be morally responsible and make good decisions on their own. By bettering the students while they are there, the students can then go out into the real world and change things, making our world better. I believe that by St. Thomas educating their students, they will not only make a change in the students'

George W. Hewlett High School (HHS) is a comprehensive school with programs designed to meet the needs of each student. It is located in Hewlett, NY a small section of Long Island. In 1898, the New York State Legislature created Union Free School District No. 14, the Hewlett-Woodmere School District, to serve the educational needs of children residing in Hewlett, a large part of Woodmere. I moved to this district after eighth grade, where I completed high school. Transitioning from a small Catholic school in Queens to this very prestigious public school in Long Island was a seamless shift for me academically; however, not so much socially. Hewlett’s large student population, demographics, and environment were some factors that made my relocation
Noura Wilmot September 26, 2016 ENC 1101 Evaluation Education would be considered the most valuable element that an individual can acquire. Learning about real world problems, meeting people, sharing life experiences, getting a job based on your abilities and becoming a success because of your knowledge. This is all stemmed from the one institution in which is the most important: School. Pembroke Pines Charter High School was the school I attended. The slogan “College, Citizenship and Community” played a very important role throughout the school program. VISION & GOAL The vision that Pembroke Pines Charter High School wants to achieve is in “collaboration with students, parents and the community, endeavors to create a challenging and supportive organization of lifelong learners” and to “actively engage in a continuous process of intellectual, emotional and social growth that is unified in direction, yet diverse in approach and instruction.” I appreciate the message that the school is displaying. The theme of the family unit being utilized brings about that no one should work alone only through teamwork which can result in success in the future. SIZE & ECONOMICS The school is fairly huge but has a very wide open space which makes the school seem huge. Buildings spread out across giving the students a chance at having some fresh air while navigating to their next class on their schedule. The school has about 1,716 students from grades 9-12th. The percentage of gender is 53
When finding the right home and city, one of the most important factors to consider is the access and proximity to schools. In addition to the access and proximity, other contributing factors are quality of education, selection of school type and innovation and vision of the school board. Maple Ridge is a great choice for young families or couples who are planning to have children in the near future. Not only are houses affordable and the neighbourhoods welcoming, friendly and safe, but the Maple Ridge School Board is one of the Lower Mainland’s most forward thinking and diverse school boards. Here is an overview of the Maple Ridge School Board as well as a look at some of the elementary and secondary schools in the city.
Carver College and Career Academy’s mission is to increase the focus on graduating students who are prepared to succeed in a workplace and society. The target market is students for the fact that the students are the future, and it is very imperative that the students receive the best education in order for them to become successful in their lives after high school. By accomplishing the school’s mission the school board ensure that the students receive the finest education from teacher’s that are patient, determined, responsible, respectful, honest, empowering and can see success in every student after they graduate. I believe that the school’s mission is very relevant because the students who attend this particular alternative school were not able to focus in a traditional school and now they are able to make progress. Carver College and Career Academy classes are very small, you will most likely see 5-10 students in a classroom on a daily basis; this will allow the student to have one on one time with their teachers and
In an effort to do this, the high school wanted to focus on a program focusing on developing, “Ethical and performance values such as caring, honesty, diligence, fairness, fortitude, responsibility, and respect for self and others” (Bennings with Quinn, 2011). These skills will not only help students be successful in the classroom, these skills will help build a community of people who strive to make tomorrow better than today. Students will use these skills as they enter the workforce, and will become the foundation for these students when they become
Growing up in New York City has been a wonderful experience. It’s made me realize the rich and engaging city Columbia is located in. While I do want to study in a lively area, I want to go to a University that provides me the best education and resources I could have. Majority of the faculty teaching at the college has been tremendously recognized within their respective fields, what better than to be guided by those very professionals. Learning organic chemistry under the tutorship of the likes of James Leighton, who has made incredible advances in the synthesis and application of polyketides as anticancer chemotherapeutic agents, or 19th-century American literature Professor Susan Bernofsky would be unimaginable. Another attractive consideration for me as an applicant is the Borrow Direct Plus On-Site Borrowing Program offered with the Butler Library student membership, in which students are able to borrow books
Our single suffocating high school is like no other; an eclectic mix of ideas, connections to organizations, and supportive faculty create a student population with strengths that highlight their community. I am lucky enough to be both a contributor and recipient of this melting pot of support.
Harrisonburg High School (HHS) is a school full of diversity. Five interesting categories to look at are students with disabilities, gender, socioeconomic status, race, and limited English proficiency. Diversity in a classroom setting is a fairly foreign experience for me. I attended a high school in rural West Virginia called Pocahontas County High School (PCHS). The student body of PCHS is a near homogenous mixture. Therefore, I am very excited to explore and learn from diverse areas such as Harrisonburg.
I believe Anson High School is aligned with the school mission. Through the YCC grant and other partnerships, Anson high school and community stakeholders invest in our students to create lifelong learners prepared for life after high school.
To start it off, there is a wide variety of students attending High School. There are kids on every end of the spectrum. Our kids all have different goals some are trying to
