At J. W. Walker School we believe that:

  • All students can achieve to their potential.
  • All members of the school community must feel safe, respected and included.
  • Leaders in our school are essential to ensure an effective learning environment.
  • Student achievement is optimized when teaching addresses the learner’s
    developmental level and learning style.
  • A variety of on-going assessments should be used to measure student achievement
    and to guide instruction.
  • Staff, parents and community partners must feel that their collaboration towards
    student achievement is valued and recognized.
  • An open and positive partnership between home and school supports student
    achievement.
  • All members of the school community share the responsibility of student
    achievement and success.
