Balmer’s Vision Statement

We would like our school to become a community where:

  • Our collegiality embodies a sense of respect, leadership and pride;
  • Learning is exciting and ever evolving;
  • Curiosity, enthusiasm, individuality and diversity are valued;
  • Mental and physical wellness are encouraged and supported.

Our community will reflect the beliefs that:

  • Students, faculty and parents are responsible for working toward common goals;
  • Everyone’s role is important in building a community of learners;
  • We work in an environment conducive to learning through site-based management.

We are a school that believes all children can learn.  We believe that it is our responsibility to answer the important questions regarding student learning:

  • What is it we expect our students to learn?
  • How do we know if they are learning it?
  • How do we respond when they don’t learn?
