NM/HZ Mission & Vision

MissionTo provide a stimulating environment which fosters a love of learning, promotes independent learners, produces responsible citizens, and interacts with the community to develop each child's potential and self-esteem. Our mission, in partnership with families and our community, is to provide each student a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment. 
In order to promote our mission, we seek to:

  •  Bridge the years between childhood and adolescence with programs structured to meet the physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of all students.
  • Inspire life long learners as we meet the academic and social challenges of our adolescence students. 
  • Provide a curriculum that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory so that every student can reach his or her potential.
  • Develop independent learners through self-motivation, self-discipline, and acceptance of responsibility. 
  • Enhance our students' self-esteem by fostering opportunities for success within the educational program. 
  • Maintain a school climate that savors the wonder, energy, and excitement of all students while giving students a sense of belonging. 
  • Encourage students and teachers to share in the responsibility of each other's safety and well-being. 
  • Develop respectful individuals and responsible citizens by modeling good morals and values. 
  • Use the gift of our school facility to broaden course offerings with an emphasis on the arts and technology. 
  • Further our commitment to diversity by exploring our differences with enthusiasm and respect for the dignity of each individual.
