CourageWe promote resilience, diligent work, and taking action - even when doing so may be difficult.
EquityWe foster a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment where individuals are nurtured, where barriers to success are eliminated, and where everyone has the opportunity to collaborate with others and reach their potential free from racism and other forms of inherent bias. We model compassion and respect for other perspectives.
CuriosityWe create opportunities for students to ask questions, identify current and future problems, explore their interests and talents, innovate, and find joy in life-long learning.
