Guiding Principles

The School District of the Chathams, a learning organization committed to personal, academic, and professional growth, strives to:

  • Instill within each student the capacity and awareness to support well-being, self-advocacy, and balance.

  • Equip each student with the competencies to succeed academically and professionally in a global environment.

  • Enable every child to feel supported and valued, and to extend support and respect to others.

  • Promote growth through ongoing collaboration, feedback, self-reflection, and service to others.

  • Ensure that there is equity of opportunity for each student to access all curricular and extra-curricular programs.

  • Align our decisions with data and evidence that promote best practices in learning and child development.
