Colonial's Mission, Vision & Beliefs
The Mission of Colonial Middle School is to create high levels of learning as the norm at each grade level through a creative and performing arts curriculum, which emphasizes good citizenship, collaboration, and results in a safe learning community.
Colonial Middle School provides an environment of cultural and creative diversity. All students, as lifelong learners, are challenged to develop the skills necessary to reach higher academic levels and to become productive citizens.
To achieve our mission and implement the district policies, the faculty and staff of Colonial Middle School believe:
1. All students can learn and will achieve academic success with highly qualified, educated, and caring educators and administrators.
2. Instructional planning must be data driven, realistic, aligned with the district and state standards, and continuously evaluated to ensure student learning and achievement.
3. Instructional strategies must be researched-based and varied to meet the diverse needs of all learners.
4. Instructional time must be maximized to produce high-quality student work and promote student-centered learning.
5. Assessment and evaluation techniques must be varied, research-based, and continually evaluated to support instructional modifications and promote individual student progress.
6. Character education programs should involve all stakeholders and be student-centered, promote academic achievement, and foster positive social interactions.
7. Effective decision-making and community collaboration are integral components of a successful school.
8. Effective communication for policy implementation is essential in keeping all stakeholders informed of school and/or district expectations, fostering a positive, physically safe, and respectful school climate/culture.
9. Technology integration at all grade levels and in all subject areas must address district and state standards/goals, which will lead to increased student achievement.
10. Student involvement and participation in the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) curriculum fosters student goal setting, teamwork, and high expectations, while preparing students for local, national, and international competitions.
11. Student involvement and participation in athletics enhances their overall social interaction skills, develops their physical fitness regime, promotes sportsmanship, fosters a “team atmosphere,” and involves students in various athletic competitions.
