Karen Acres Belief Statements / Philosophy We believe children learn best when:
> Students, families, schools, and community work together to form strong partnerships and hold high expectations of success
> Students are in a safe learning environment that promotes mutual respect, trust, and caring
> Students are actively engaged in learning experiences that are challenging, meaningful, and designed to meet individual differences and needs.
> Students are encouraged to be reflective and creative thinkers, problem solvers, effective communicators, and life-long learners
> Students’ academic, social, and emotional needs are supported
