Our Mission

Our mission describes our school's purpose. Our vision depicts our desired future. The principles needed to achieve our mission and vision are articulated in our values. Finally, the actions we need to demonstrate to make our mission, vision and values a reality are described in our collective commitments.

We have developed these statements in collaboration with our staff, students and families. They are part of our School Success Plan.

Mission

Green Glade's mission is to facilitate the academic, social, physical and emotional development of each child. We do this by providing a safe and caring environment, in which we challenge each student and work to instil a love of learning, a quest for knowledge and respect for themselves and others. This will provide our students with the self-confidence to handle the different situations that they will encounter throughout their lives and to "be the best they can be." Green Glade's vision is that throught a child's middle school experience, we will encourage a love for lifelong learning by providing varied opportunities for students to take ownership and be active participants in their own learning. Students will work cooperatively and independently to develop a sense of community while they will focus on their own intellectual, physical and emotional well being.
