WE BELIEVE . . .
Our first responsibility is to provide a quality educational program that meets the needs of all students in the district.
That we teach the whole child. We expect academic achievement, personal responsibility, honesty, cultural sensitivity, and respect for people, property and the environment.
That all children can learn best in a safe, clean, caring, and aesthetically pleasing environment.
That when we come together as one community, we are enriched by our cultural diversity.
That people are our most important resource and should be treated with respect and dignity.
That we need families as partners with the school and district in sharing ideas and giving input to major decisions
affecting their children’s education.
That when students’ families are engaged in their learning, their student will be engaged in learning.
That we have a responsibility to demonstrate the effective and wise use of money and resources.
That we serve our students and our community best when we work together as a team.
This belief statement was developed by families, community members, teachers, classified staff, administrators, business people, students and board members reflecting the diverse cultures and values of the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.
