New Haven Public Schools Vision:
We believe that all kids can learn, achieve, and rise to a
bright future. Our purpose is to provide an outstanding education
that extends beyond graduation and prepares our students to be the
next generation of leaders, innovators and problem-solvers.
Engagement is the foundation of learning and growth, for
students, adults, and the school district as a whole. We will be
successful when all students actively engage in their own learning,
when adults engage in their professional community, and when the
school district is consistently learning and growing to respond to
the needs of children and schools. We must all engage and take
collective responsibility for ensuring student success and
wellbeing so that every child has a chance to rise.
To create this engagement, our vision is to build a portfolio of
great schools that empower students to achieve success in college,
career and life through purposeful, supportive and meaningful
learning experiences. In crafting those learning experiences, we
must strive to engage the whole child - the academic learning, the
social-emotional growth, and health that enable students and
schools to rise.
As we work, we hold tight to the values of collaboration, growth
and innovation, and equity.
