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

We believe that a positive, innovative learning environment empowers all of us to grow socially and academically. At Macville our learning culture values wellness, high expectations, diversity and a growth mindset. As modern learners, we use intentional and collaborative practices to enhance academic and personal skills.

Vision

We will inspire modern learning, by building resiliency, promoting critical thinking, and encouraging creative risk-taking in order to be adaptive and responsive in an ever-changing world. To do this, we will: - sustain a learning culture that fosters curiosity and empathy to support safe learning spaces; - use a transparent and equitable assessment approach to guide the learning process; - innovate using technology to explore new possibilities, form new connections and participate as global citizens; - nurture well-being and respond to the cognitive, emotional and social needs of all learners; - integrate models of learning that are student centred.
