    • Cross-curricular Professional Learning Communities in which teachers from all content areas collaborate on projects, assessments, standards-based lessons, and data driven instruction.
    • Student centered classrooms in which scholars are engaged in real world applications of academic knowledge.
    • Instructors who leverage the power of technology to personalize learning for scholars and provide “just in time” instruction to meet the needs of each student.
    • Students as autonomous learners, exploring their interests as it relates to academic content, making learning relevant and fun.
    • A culture of academic excellence where the emphasis is placed on mastery and understanding as opposed to assignment completion and numerical grades.
    • The school as a robust and resilient community in which students feel safe to make mistakes.
    • A community cultivating a respectful, supportive, and culturally responsive environment that invites students to develop a positive self-image, self-worth, and self-confidence as the leaders of tomorrow.
