Mission Statement

We believe

All students should have access to comprehensive career and technical education programs of instruction to enable them to validate their occupational choices while establishing a solid foundation of academic, career, interpersonal and technical knowledge and skills.

Learning is an essential, dynamic and exciting life-long process that ensures the greatest probability for success within one’s personal and professional life.

The process of learning requires each of us to assume a large measure of the responsibility for creating and maintaining a positive learning environment which is sensitive to the learning style needs and interests of all students.

Students should develop and maintain an understanding of, and appreciation for cultural diversity and the need to honor and respect each individual for his/her contributions, needs and interests.

All students should leave high school with essential knowledge and skills to participate successfully in a global economy and that these skills should include, but are not limited to, the ability to solve real world problems, think creatively, work as a member of a team, show compassion for others, organize and manage time and resources, engage in life-long learning activities and understand the need and benefit of post-secondary education and training.
