Northwest’s Principles in Action
- We believe that student learning is our ultimate responsibility. Our staff is dedicated to ongoing professional learning. High expectations should never be compromised for our students or ourselves.
- We believe we need to create a safe predictable caring environment for our students and staff so everyone is willing to take risks.
Along with the rest of the Lebanon School District, student achievement is our goal. Our number one indicator is for all of our students to have the necessary experiences to develop the knowledge and skills for their chosen career path.
We will get there by fostering relationships with our students to the degree that we can customize our learning environment to support their strengths, needs, and interests.
To achieve this end, we will:
- Create and maintain a safe and healthy school environment that promotes social and emotional wellness.
- Utilize an aligned curriculum to ensure students experience relevant and meaning in mastering the PA Core Standards.
- Research, implement, and refine best teaching practices to personalize and accelerate learning.
- Analyze data to monitor our progress and adjust our strategies to ensure all of our students make a minimum of one year’s growth annually.
- Use our resources efficiently and effectively towards achieving our goal.
