Mission

VISION

 
To teach and inspire; to reach and transform.  Every student.  Every year.

 

 MISSION

 

To graduate students who experience a rigorous academic program and emerge as confident critical thinkers who embrace challenges, demonstrate resiliency, and are empowered to pursue personal goals and contribute positively to their communities.

 

 

 THE WAKEFIELD WAY

 

RIGOR – We hold high expectations academically and behaviorally of all students.  Teachers provide challenging, stimulating instruction that emphasizes critical thinking, encourages creativity, and builds confidence.

 

RELATIONSHIPS – We create innovative programs to establish meaningful relationships between students and staff.  These relationships increase trust, enhance motivation and improve academic performance.

 

RESILIENCE – We challenge students through demanding coursework and extracurricular involvement to demonstrate the courage to take positive risks, learn from mistakes, value perseverance and strive for excellence.

 

RESPONSIBILITY – We expect students to value diversity, demonstrate high moral character and commit to become caring, engaged citizens of a global community.

 

RESULTS – We create a passion for excellence through the collaborative efforts of staff, students, parents and the community.  We develop students who possess positive self-esteem, feel confidently prepared for college or a career and commit to being lifelong learners.
