We believe that each child is a unique person with an individual growth pattern of development.  It is our vision in the realm of curriculum and instruction that we must be responsive to individual differences in ability and interest to help students maximize their potential.  To ensure opportunities for success, levels of ability, readiness, and learning styles will be recognized, accepted and integrated as teachers implement district curriculum requirements for all students.  It is our vision that specific areas of emphasis should not only include needed basic skills and the ability to acquire knowledge, but challenge students to achieve at higher levels, applying learned problem solving strategies.
