Learning Philosophy

Our school Learning philosophy is heavily influenced by Professional Learning Communities.

What are Professional Learning Communities?

  • PLC's are part of an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students we serve.
  • PLC's operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous, job-embedded learning for educators.


The Big Ideas of a PLC...

  • We accept learning as the fundamental purpose of our school and therefore are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on learning.
  • We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose.
  • We cultivate a collaborative culture through the development of high-performing teams.
  • We assess our effectiveness on the basis of results rather than intentions. Individuals, teams, and leadership seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.
