The Stamford High School partnership of administrators, faculty, and staff believes that all students can learn. We believe that we must provide a rigorous, relevant curriculum for all students and that we need to find ways to engage all students regardless of their varied abilities and backgrounds. To do so, we must give students multiple opportunities to succeed in the high school experience as well as set high expectations for all students and hold them, and ourselves, accountable.
To succeed in these efforts, teachers need district- and school-level support to obtain the knowledge necessary to continuously practice high-quality, research-based instruction in the classroom, engaging all students to work to their full potential. This includes classrooms equipped with up-to-date technology and training for teachers in its use and integration into instruction. We must also foster and maintain a culture that focuses on the importance of academics and routinely celebrates academic achievement.
In addition, as a school community of administrators, teachers, staff, and parents, it is our responsibility to model life-long learning, civic engagement, and respect and tolerance for diversity and each other in this global world in which we live. We are committed to provide our students and ourselves a safe, clean environment in which to learn and feel pride.
