Mission & Philosophy

About Us

As a result of our efforts, all students will be successfully prepared for life in a safe and nurturing environment.

GVMS Cardinal

GVMS is CREW not Passengers

Learning is active.  Students are scientists, urban planners, historians and activists, investigating real community problems and collaborating with peers to develop creative, actionable solutions.

Learning is challenging.  Students at all levels are pushed and supported to do more than they think they can. Excellence is expected in the quality of their work and thinking.

Learning is meaningful.  Students apply their skills and knowledge to real-world issues and problems and make positive change in their communities. They see the relevance of their learning and are motivated by understanding that learning has purpose.

Learning is public.  Through formal structures of presentation, exhibition, critique, and data analysis, students and teachers build a shared vision of pathways to achievement.

Learning is collaborative.  School leaders, teachers, students, and families share rigorous expectations for quality work, achievement and behavior. Trust, respect, responsibility and joy in learning permeate the school culture.

Graphic of reasons why attendance matters, titled, "Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow,"all content listed in text above

Good school attendance means...Elementary students read well by the end of third grade, middle schoolers pass important courses, high schoolers stay on track for graduation, college students earn their degrees, workers succeed in their jobs. Too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and in life. How many are too many? 10% of the school year, that's 18 missed days or 2 days a month, can knock students off track. 

//

La buena asistencia en la escuela significa que los estudiantes... primaria leen bien al fin del tercer grado, secundario aprueban cursos importantes, preparatoria permanecen en camino a graduarse, universitario obtienen sus títulos universitarios, el trabajo tienen éxito en sus puestos de trabajo. Demasiadas ausencias, permitidas o no, pueden impedir que los estudiantes tengan éxito en la escuela y en la vida. Cuantas son "demasiadas"? El 10% del año escolar, o sea faltando 19 días (2 días por mes), puede causar que el estudiante se desvié.
