To be a model for urban public education.

While individual schools around the country have risen to this standard, no district has comprehensively performed at this level. We owe it to our children to set a very high bar. With persistence, dedication, creativity, and student focus, we will reach our vision.

Core Beliefs

We believe:
  • Our diversity is a source of strength.
  • Our schools must be safe.
  • All students are capable of meeting high expectations.
  • We are accountable for our students’ success.
  • Every individual in our Division contributes to student success.
  • We have a responsibility to work collaboratively with our families.
  • Respect, trust, and honest communication are the foundation of successful and productive relation-ships.
  • The vitality of our community depends on a strong school system.
