Quotes from Parent Advocates
“Mitford is a great school because great schools are made up of teachers and support staff who believe walls are made to be jumped over. Who believe not only that every student has within them the potential for greatness, but worked tirelessly so that some actually do make the jump.” G.Y.
“I am excited at the potential that lies ahead with our School Council working together with Mitford Staff to educate our parents about 21st Century.” C.H.
How do we define success for Mitford students?
Success for our students begins with forming meaningful connections and relationships with their peers and supporting adults. Mitford students experience success when they are acquiring skills and understanding concepts at the appropriate level for their abilities. They feel valued and successful when they acquire knowledge and skills and demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. Student success is assessed by allowing for multiple means of expression and encouraging the use of technology to differentiate for various learning styles and needs.
What makes our school good and how do we know?
Our learning community possesses a safe and caring environment where mutual respect and kindness is promoted on a daily basis. Students are our first priority and our highly collaborative educators strive to personalize and individualize the learning environments to assist all children. Many staff offer their time and talents outside the regular day giving our students the opportunities to acquire a variety of additional learning. Our success is supported by survey results, parent feedback, along with our APORI results. Mitford staff continually is searching for innovative ways to provide our students quality and meaningful learning experiences.
