CORE Values

We strive to put our CORE values into practice every day. Our values capture a distinctive philosophy about education that influences our teachers, students, parents and the community. Grounded in the belief that learning should be joyful, engaging and challenging, these CORE values motivate our daily efforts into creating brighter futures.

As an organization, and in every aspect of our program, we celebrate diversity, teamwork, and successes large and small in order to facilitate a strong sense of belonging. Above all, we believe in making Aim High a place where all of our community members feel empowered, appreciated, and safe.
