Excellence in Student Achievement
What We're About
in student achievement is a habit at Scott School. Our school operates
in a culture of encouragement and caring. We are a school of action,
shared knowledge, and optimism. We are clear about what we expect
students to learn in each class, grade level, and content area. Our
school stretches the hopes, aspirations, and performance of its students
and adults. The central focus of our work is learning rather than
teaching, therefore we hold ourselves accountable for the results. We
are grounded in the belief that all of us can and should
improve. Continuous improvement and learning is imbedded in our school
are leaders and set high standards, use continuous assessment, and
monitor student achievement. We know what students are learning because
we routinely utilize multiple forms of assessments. Teacher teams are
eager for results. They gather and analyze data to identify improvement
goals and to monitor progress toward goals. They collaborate and take
part in professional discussion daily. We are a “high impact school”
and through decisions made by collaboration, teachers provide timely and
systematic support and assistance to students.

responsibility of the school, families, and stakeholders.
