Our world has become a global community in constant flux due to rapidly changing forces. Now more than ever a resilient and collaborative global citizenship is needed for nations to unite and work towards lasting peace.
We share ideas in a variety of ways and listen to others with respect and open minds.
We respond to the changing needs of our community, integrating the strengths and differences of every individual. We create and maintain an environment based on respectful collaboration.
We are visionaries who identify problems and recognize them as the necessary impetus for growth. Inspired by communal principles, we pool our resources to develop innovative and ethical outcomes.
We develop strong work habits and intrinsic motivation through active partnerships with parents, students, and staff. Working with integrity, we strive to acquire knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
We demonstrate mastery with a successive progression of learning materials, steadily working towards the abstract. We examine ideas and issues critically and creatively, measuring the impact of our efforts on the local community and the world at large.
We take risks, meeting challenges with perseverance, flexibility, and determination. We build resiliency learning from our mistakes and celebrating our successes.
We make a positive difference in the world by considering the perspectives of others and balancing our response with compassion and empathy.
We are fully engaged in our own self-construction. We are working towards functional independence, and the development of life-long skills, while recognizing the interdependence of our community.
"This is the hope we have - a hope in a new humanity that will come from this new education, an education that is a collaboration of humanity and the universe, that is a help for evolution, for the incarnation of humanity." Reconstruction in Education, Maria Montessori, 1964
