“Inspiring, challenging, and preparing every child, every day.”
Auburn-Washburn strives to deliver exemplary, world-class education for all students, instilling in them the knowledge, skills, and character required to be responsible and productive citizens.
Auburn-Washburn schools provides a safe, enjoyable, and challenging school environment where students have the opportunity to achieve their maximum individual education potential. All students receive a balanced education where traditional scholastics are taught, creativity and innovation are cultivated, and life-skills are learned; preparing them to assume roles as responsible citizens in a global community.
We believe learning is a lifelong process. The following values will help realize our vision:
We believe in the value and uniqueness of each student:
- Each student has different needs.
- Each student should have the opportunity, and be encouraged, to reach their potential.
- Each student is entitled to a safe and secure school environment.
We believe that excellence in education is a multifaceted process:
- Excellence requires the commitment and judicious stewardship of community resources.
- Excellence prepares students to become productive members of a global society; to live and work in a complex, ever-changing world.
- Excellence is grounded in fundamental skills.
- Excellence must be a dynamic process in order to meet changing needs.
- Excellence requires rigorous assessment and feedback of both students and faculty.
- Excellence requires focus on the future.
- Excellence depends upon effectively managed financial and physical resources.
- Excellence, both academic and through good citizenship, should be recognized and rewarded.
We believe that respect and responsibility are essential components of an excellent education:
- Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
- Communication enhances trust and cooperation.
- Each student is responsible for their own actions.
- Responsibility for public education rests jointly with students, parents, teachers, and community.
