About this school

Educational Philosophy * We believe learning is sequential and cumulative. * We believe that to be a literate member of any community, one must learn shared information. * We believe that to be literate one must learn solid information. * We believe a specific core of knowledge and skills must be taught at each grade. * We believe knowledge and thinking skills are best acquired when taught simultaneously. * We believe all knowledge can be presented in a developmentally appropriate way. * We believe all our students can learn. We acknowledge that some will learn more easily than others. * We believe teachers are the most critical factor in determining a school's effectiveness. Therefore we believe in attracting, developing and retaining teachers who are deeply committed to the mission of our schools. * We believe teacher knowledge of subject matter is as important as pedagogical technique. * We believe all methods of instruction are effective when properly employed and must be incorporated in every classroom. * We believe methods must vary with age groups. * We believe reading is the most important skill for a child to master to unlock the world- especially in this "Age of Information." We believe strong decoding skills; a rich vocabulary and a broad base of knowledge are essential to reading with fluency, accuracy and comprehension. * We believe children will behave appropriately and respectfully most of the time if the classroom has clearly defined procedures, limits and boundaries that are taught and enforced in a respectful, benevolent, calm and non-oppressive manner. * Because we believe all knowledge comes from God, teaching the faith is integrated in all we do. * Finally, we believe that through Christ's death and resurrection, all people can claim God's unconditional love and forgiveness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the Gospel, live under Him and His Kingdom, and live a repentant life of love and service. Our Goals * Master solid, specific and shared skills and knowledge in the Bible, history, geography, the language arts, science, math, music and the visual arts. * Be physically fit and active. * Learn to research, organize and use information * Develop the ability to analyze and synthesize information in the formation of opinions, values and behaviors. * Develop the ability to reason and think critically. * Develop the ability to solve problems. * Develop and maintain believes rooted in the Bible and the Lutheran Confessions. * Develop the behaviors of repentance, love and service. * Develop the social competencies of planning, decision-making, resistance
