Morse•Marshall will engage, inspire, and challenge our school community to be innovative citizens in a complex, interconnected, changing world.
Our Core Values
These principles guide our work and define our mission:
College and Career Readiness. We believe all students should have equitable access and exploration experiences in college & career readiness.
- We believe we are connected to our community through words, images, symbols, and stories. Our respectful communication told well, defines our priorities, and enables us to imagine viable solutions, creating relevant information for people.
Learner Centered. We believe learning is a social process. We believe placing the emphasis on the learner and previous experiences and interests increases motivation for learning and greater satisfaction with school, leading to greater achievement. This approach emphasizes a variety of different types of methods that shifts the role of the instructors from givers of information to facilitating student learning. The learner centered classroom provides opportunities to reflect on and regulate one’s thoughts and behaviors through the use of multiple teaching styles that maximize learner engagement.
- We believe partnerships with parents, families, communities, and other stakeholders are essential to quality public education and student success. We believe individuals are strengthened when they work together for the common good.
- We believe quality education provides supported opportunities for individuals to understand knowledge through attaining higher levels of thinking.
