Profile of a learner
Posted 10/18/2017 10:40AM


We engage our students in authentic learning that prepares them with the skills to be global minded citizens.

Parents want to know that their child is on the right path for success in life. Educators want to ensure that our students learn the skills today needed to open doors to the future. Together we recognize that we have an important role in establishing the foundation for our children to grow.

In their elementary years, children must develop basic academic literacy. A strong academic core in reading, writing, science and math enables students with the basic tools for success. While these basic tools are critical, we also know that college, career and the ever-changing work force demand much more than simply foundational skills. When our children demonstrate open-ended innovative thought, respect divergent thinking, engage others in thoughtful discussion, actively and creatively solve problems, develop a personal voice and have a strong academic core, our children will be prepared for their life's journey.

In service of these hopes and desires, our teacher leaders, school site leadership, and Instruction Department have been engaging in intentional work to draft and develop our profile of a learner. This work has resulted in the creating of six outcomes we want for all students: Learner, Advocate, Collaborator, Communicator, Critical Thinker, and Innovator.
