Middle School Values, Vision and Mission Statement

DRAFT

In Chilliwack, we believe that all young adolescent learners will succeed through developmentally appropriate educational experiences. Our Middle Schools are committed to  high quality instruction through a variety of meaningful learning experiences, creating strong connections within a safe and inclusive community and providing access to multiple support systems to meet the diverse needs of young adolescents.

To achieve this we commit to:

  • Exploratory – providing students the opportunity to sample high interest courses
  • Advisory – dedicated instructional time with students to foster connectedness and positive relationships
  • Collaboration – ongoing inquiry based team work

Supports

  • Family and Community partnerships – remain critical to the success of every student
  • School Based Team – specialist and core educators meeting to support individual students
  • Response to Intervention – instructional interventions to support diverse student learning needs
  • Quality and focused professional development to further delve into middle learning and support evidence based practices
