Mission, Vision, and Core Beliefs: A Caring Community of Learners
We will strive to prepare our students to become character-filled lifelong learners, and responsible, productive citizens who will experience success and contribute to an ever-changing, diverse, and technological world.
In order to achieve this mission, we believe that:
*All children can learn, and that each child is a unique individual learner.
*We must build trust and cooperate closely with parents, community members, as well as business and education partners.
*We must provide a caring, friendly, and supportive school community that promotes learning, teamwork, problem-solving skills, and the development of intellectual, social-emotional, and physical growth.
*Our instructional program must meet individual needs while offering a creative, challenging, and engaging curriculum.
At John Wayland Elementary School, we place special emphasis on environmental education, children’s engineering, and the arts.
