MMS Essentials Team Vision

• All students need an orderly, supportive, safe, and positive learning environment in order to grow and learn.
          --We believe our students deserve a fully developed education that channels into their natural ability to learn and succeed.
• We are committed to providing quality instruction based on students’ needs and interests.
          --We believe that it is essential for students to have exposure to life skills, culture, and a variety of learning through performance and creation.
• All students will grow to learn and recognize their gifts.
          --We will work with the students in our content area to create products that fit his or her learning style in a supportive environment needed             to become independent, self-motivated, and successful.  We believe that students learn from one another in significant ways; therefore, we create             many opportunities for both individual work and team work.
