STAMFORD CENTRAL SCHOOL MISSION

Our mission is to build a partnership of students, families, staff,

community dedicated to excellence.

LEARNING: All children can learn. Each student is capable of
reaching his/her full potential at his/her own individual rate.

SELF-ESTEEM: Each child's self-esteem needs to be
fostered and nurtured.

ENVIRONMENT: All children are entitled to a safe and caring
atmosphere that promotes a desire to learn, as well as a
curriculum, instructional methods and expectations that challenge
them to perform at their best.

COMMUNITY: Each child's academic and social development is
enhanced by an actively participating community. All partners are encouraged to pursue life-long learning.


ASSESSMENT: Assessment must be continual, subject to periodic
review and focused on:
    1. The educational process to determine its consistency
    with our mission statement and beliefs.
    2. Our mission statement and beliefs in light
    of changing educational needs.
    3. The individual participants to determine if their
