About Us

Vision

Mission

To create a better community through content, communication, collaboration, commitment,

creative thinking, and critical thinking.

Classes through Communities

English Honors

In the Communities program, we integrate literacy into the curriculum through researching real-life issues, fostering effective reading habits, and writing for authentic purposes and audiences. We demonstrate our literacy skills by creating social media posts, participating in media interviews, writing media release and presenting to community members.

Social Studies

In the Communities program, we look at past and present events and then dive deeper into them. Our textbook is a living one. Our students closely read or view speeches, interview community experts, analyze historical documents and photos with a criticla perspective. Our students will demonstrate their in authentic or real-life situations.

Leadership

In the Communities program, we implement leadership by providing volunteer experiences in and out of school. We also have public speaking opportunities to build confidence and independence from our typical group work. Every Friday students have the opportunity to volunteer and speak at the Mid-Morning Kiwanis meeting to improve our leadership and public speaking skills.

Critical Thinking

In neighborhoods, students participate in critical thinking activities. We solve upside-down puzzles, play word games, and other fun brain games.

Collaboration

The majority of the things we do in Communities are group projects so you learn to work with people. We all have different ideas and work together to help us achieve our common goal.

Creativity

We use creativity to come up with exciting social media posts that capture the attention of community partners as well as media outlets, alumni, parents and students.

Commitment

Commitment in Communities is following up with the things you say you'll do. This means getting your work done, showing up, and keeping yourself accountable.

In Communities 1, teachers direct the skills and knowledge taught as well as choose the projects. In Communities 2, students are given more autonomy to apply their skills.

Every healthy community has strong neighborhoods.  Our program is no different! We always begin our day in neighborhoods.  Neighborhoods is where we strengthen our relationships, tinker with creativity and critical thinking and grow our communication skills.  Neighborhoods is where all of our fun activities take place before our classroom project time.
