North Star Educational Commitments
Our North Star Educational Commitments were designed to foster a learning environment in which all learners will be able to develop their unique self and their capacity, and contribute to community through continuous cycles of inquiry.
Learners will develop their unique self
We believe that learning is a process of discovery through which one increases self-awareness, explores identities, finds personal joy and clarifies core values. This involves fostering different paths to success and providing opportunities to reflect on one’s life, strengths, needs, and goals.
Learners will develop their capacity
We believe that, given support and opportunities, all learners will be continually inspired to persevere and maximize their potential. We support each individual’s unique way of learning, giving them an understanding of themselves as lifelong learners. We honor each learner’s learning path, energize them to develop skills, expand their mind, grow in all areas, and meet current and future goals.
