Shared Vision of Excellence

Recently I was reading about the idea of “excellence” and I stumbled across this definition “something that is unusually good and so surpasses ordinary standards”. Excellence is not the product of snapping our fingers and seeing a quick result. Excellence is the result of hard work, perseverance, and constant learning as the journey progresses.

DRAFT of Shared Vision of Excellence:
We succeed when each of our students:
• Effectively listens and communicates ideas
• Collaboratively solves problems and designs solutions
• Exhibits character and models empathy toward others
• Celebrates individual differences and values multiple perspectives
• Possesses the foundation necessary for future educational challenges
• Critically thinks about personal, social, and global issues
• Accesses and analyzes information to make thoughtful decisions
• Demonstrates curiosity and confidently takes risks to achieve excellence
• Utilizes technology to enhance creativity and innovation
• Makes healthy choices that positively impact their life and the lives of others

We are continuing to revise this draft of our vision and welcome your input. If you have a thought, strongly agree with a statement, or wonder about something, please let us know. You can send your feedback to jason.adams@mrhschool.net.

We welcome your input as we continue the process of creating our “Shared Vision of Excellence”.

Enjoy a wonderful March and a great Spring Break! Respectfully,

Jason Adams
