Our Mission as a school is to provide all of our students with the academic and social/emotional competencies necessary to continue their progress as a student while they are with us. As well as planning with all student support networks to provide transition plans that will support each student’s continued success on their pathway to graduation.  
Our School Vision is for all of our students will strive to achieve academic and social/emotional advances that will lead to completion of their educational goals, and the opportunity to explore various college/career choices.   In order to accomplish this, our school will be a community of learners, studying to find and implement innovative instructional and therapeutic strategies, thereby building our toolkits so that we may meet the needs of our diverse student population.
