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.


As a school community, we recognize and embrace individual differences and empower students to move towards independence. Our goal for each learner is to acquire functional skills that facilitate independence for their life beyond 21. By creating informed student success frameworks in a respectful and caring environment, we can teach functional skills to and for independence.


"Towards Independence" Students, staff and community supporters will jointly foster a culture of learning that will facilitate a successful transition for students into adulthood.
