Our Culture

The Foundation of Who We Are and Everything We Do. 

To accompany our definition of equity, we have identified key values and behavioral practices to support our vocalized commitment. Through the values of Equity, Empowerment, and Engagement, we ensure that we take ownership of having a tenacious intentional focus on setting high & appropriate expectations for students and ourselves. We authentically engage in this work while acknowledging cultural and experiential context with a sense of empathy and courage.
