    Core Educational Beliefs

    I believe ALL students can learn and be a productive member of society.  There is an old saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't force them to drink!"  I believe we can put 'salt' in the hay to increase their thirst! 

     

    “Each individual, no matter what level of skills or IQ or social abilities, can become a contributing member of the community. This is what will give meaning to their lives.” -- Temple Grandin
