Locally Rooted and Globally Informed
We value the enormous assets in the communities where we work, immerse ourselves in local perspectives, needs and opportunities, and work in deep partnership with students, families, educators, and community members—all while also seeking to build our understanding of what is possible based on insights from outside of our communities and countries.
We are committed to open and continuous reflection and growth. We ask for and welcome constructive feedback from one another, our students and ourselves in order to ground our work in honesty.
We don’t compare ourselves to the alternative, but set an urgent and ambitious that we keep pushing higher.
Sense of Possibility
Innovation is Simple
Respect and Empathy
We treat one another and the communities we serve with respect and empathy. We embrace difference in perspective and experience, and view them as opportunities to learn and grow. We seek first to understand and then to be understood.
