 O.P.P.A. Educational Beliefs

  • Optimistic that all students can have a valuable learning experience, we are committed to meeting the needs of each student; therefore, we will offer a standards-based curriculum through differentiated instruction and real-world experiences.
  • Positive behavior intervention support (PBIS) is essential to creating and maintaining a safe and secure learning environment; therefore, we will model and promote positive behavior expectations for all students.
  • Parental and community partnerships are a key contributor in helping students to reach their maximum potential; therefore, we will work collaboratively with parents and community agencies to provide programs to help promote student development.
  • Adolescence is a period of significant physical, social, and emotional change; therefore, we will educate students about these changes in a caring environment which builds self-confidence through self-awareness.
