We believe that no one person, no one agency can address our community’s problems, and so we value our work in collaboration with other organizations and community partners.
We honor our collective and individual identities and assume positive intent in our interactions. By treating our students, our families, our partners and ourselves with respect, we create the opportunity for authentic relationships and nurture social justice.
We commit to being curious about our impact by challenging assumptions through reflection, experimentation, holistic evaluation and adaptation.
We build trust by engaging in our work responsibly and with accountability. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and take personal responsibility for our actions.
Everyone deserves to experience joy. We strive to find joy in our work, to inspire joy in our children and families, and to recognize that joy is as necessary as bread to our sustenance and survival.
We are flexible and nimble, leveraging resources in order to pursue opportunities as they arise.
