Mission

Bolton School aims at preparing students for life by providing challenging and dynamic learning experiences in all disciplines which enables students develop a deeper understanding about themselves and the world around them in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment .

Our Beliefs:

    We believe ...
  • 1. Every student will be proficient in all subject areas, including life skills such as respect for themselves and others. Student growth is the key to proficiency, and in order to support this, staff members must collaborate with one another to help all students.
  • 2. Student effort is driven by our expectations, example, and excitement. It is our job to state expectations, model positive interactions with one another, and provide a positive learning environment that offers students multiple opportunities to participate in a variety of learning experiences in which they can be successful.
  • 3. Students’ challenges in life do not define who they will become. These challenges are simply stepping-stones to success. It is our job to create positive relationships with students and their families. Challenges will not interfere with our high expectations; expectations will be fair for all students.
  • 4. Consistent collaboration among staff members and with students/families, is critical to student and school success. Collaboration should happen on a daily basis through formal structures, as well as informally with students at the heart of our work.
  • 5. High expectations will be set for students, staff, and parents, with permission to fail while taking academic risks, support for persevering and showing grit, and opportunities to learn while never giving up- no matter what- No Excuses!

Our Pledge & Mission:

We are committed to providing extraordinary educational opportunities to every learner.
