The West Hartford Public School District is committed to a rigorous educational program with high expectations for all students. Recognizing that children have differing learning needs that must be addressed through an array of instructional practices guided by district and state curricular standards, the instructional program will:
Establish high academic standards and instruction programs in mathematics, English, science, social science, physical education and wellness, the arts, and world languages;
Provide students with a solid foundation in reading, writing, problem-solving, and communications;
Provide a positive learner-centered environment that fosters academic excellence, creativity, lifelong learning, and essential life skills necessary to succeed in the world of work, as members of families, and as citizens;
Provide students opportunities to learn, think, reason, and utilize technology as an effective resource;
Develop in students a respect for the dignity, the rights, and the worth of all individuals.
The Board of Education will establish specific and measurable goals and objectives that will be evaluated annually.
