Our Mission & Values
Avalon is here to empower and inspire our diverse student body to achieve academic excellence and make positive contributions to the world.
Our School is a vital center of community life enriched by the diversity of our city and welcoming to all families. Each classroom offers engaging and culturally-relevant curriculum that builds on students’ interests and abilities. Student needs are identified by regular assessment to inform our teaching and guide appropriate and effective intervention services. We offer an enriched learning environment and a comprehensive system of support services to address the needs of every child.
Our Educators believe that all students can meet or exceed rigorous academic standards. Teachers, staff, and administrators together form a rich professional learning community where all are supported to hone our professional craft and improve our effectiveness. Through the examination of our instructional practices and data, we adjust our teaching and operational systems in order to continuously improve. We are responsible in the stewardship of our fiscal resources and fair and equitable in their distribution.
Our Students are curious, creative learners who succeed through personal initiative and sustained effort to reach high academic goals. They are critical thinkers who seek knowledge and possess technological competence and collaborative skills. Our students embrace diversity, act responsibly, and contribute to our community.
