"The most successful of our teachers are putting their students on a path towards opportunities and outcomes in the course of their two years. Our shared goal is to grow our students as leaders who can shape a better future for themselves and all of us. In this pursuit, our teachers are working to improve students’ skills and academic outcomes, developing dispositions that are crucial to success, like the ability to pursue goals, an awareness of the world, and a sense of agency to improve their own lives and our collective welfare."
