The MPS District Mission
The District educates all students for success in higher education, careers, and responsible citizenship so that the District is the first choice for families.
The Walt Whitman Mission
Whitman School will build a strong academic foundation, encourage an eagerness to learn, affirm personal strengths, enhance positive social skills and nurture community involvement for all of our children. These goals are accomplished by providing a challenging, meaningful and interactive education in a safe and caring learning environment.
The Walt Whitman Vision
At Whitman School, we envision a rigorous, standards-based curriculum where all students will demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and mindset to perform academically at or above their grade level in all disciplines. Every day, every student will engage in learning that will prepare them for success in post-secondary education, future careers, and life-long learning. This is the foundation we will use to guide our instruction during the year.
The Walt Whitman Community Values:
1) Developing critical thinking to solve real life problems by implementing the standards-based curriculum with fidelity.
2) Providing a warm, caring, and safe environment, with family and community involvement, to develop a strong, educational community.
That’s The Whitman Wildcat Way!
