Core Values

*St. George School is an inclusive learning community.

At the St. George School all students are welcome. Individual differences are valued and appreciated. It is a place where students and adults work at increasing their skills and knowledge. By connecting generations and instilling a sense of place, our school helps each child develop the confidence and know-how to explore their world.

* All students can succeed.

Students are expected to be actively engaged in their learning and have a voice in the planning of curriculum. Teachers recognize that students learn at different rates and in different ways. Each student will demonstrate continuous improvement in concepts, skills, and habits needed for success. Through collaboration, students discover their own strengths and come to appreciate that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. They learn that fulfillment comes from service beyond self. They are proud of their accomplishments, and they value the rewards that come from hard work.

*Teachers make a difference.

Teachers at St. George School are committed to the growth and well-being of all children. They strive to be experts who understand how to involve students in meaningful learning. They continually work to improve their professional skills and create a lively learning environment where lasting personal connections are made.

*How we teach is as important as what we teach.

Energized by and dedicated to the important work we do, educators at the St. George School teach with and for children. Together, teachers and students design integrated, project-based units and lessons that meet state and national standards. Knowing that success in life depends as much on strong work habits as on academic knowledge, we teach cooperation, responsibility and perseverance as essential skills for success.
