We need to ensure that every student participates in a rigorous and engaging learning experience.
My Commitment to Our Students and Our Community:
A vision for the Amherst, Pelham and Regional Schools
We must recognize our students for who they are and must challenge
them to excel while balancing their academic progress with expressive,
personal, physical, civic, and social development. We must provide our
students with the highest quality education possible in order to prepare
them for success in a global, interconnected future. The 21st century
education at ARPS will enable our students to address challenges we
cannot predict, to use adaptive and creative thinking and
problem-solving, to understand technology and languages, and to respect
and understand diverse beliefs, cultures and backgrounds.
To achieve excellence for our students, we are committed to being the
highest quality educational system possible. This includes a commitment
to continual improvement, informed reflection, and the collection and
analysis of data. As an educational system, we must attract and retain
excellent educators who can provide a challenging, relevant and cohesive
curriculum that serves the needs of our diverse students. We reaffirm
our commitment to a vital and focused program of professional
development for our staff and a safe environment for learning and
constructive communication for our students. And we commit to the wise
allocation of the resources our communities provide.
