    I Believe:

    ·         Every student has the potential to achieve their personal goals, but should be challenged to reach even higher.

    ·         Education creates free-thinking members of a democracy who possess the courage to make their voice heard. 

    ·         Students must be prepared for higher education, participation in society, and instilled with the value of life-long learning. 

    ·         The English curriculum allows each student to have a voice through academic and creative writing— all the while challenging their prospective through analysis of literature.
