Balmer's Core Values


We believe in recognizing and respecting individual differences so that students and teachers feel comfortable, safe, important, accepted, and successful in all aspects of life.


We believe in communication so that our school environment is open to sharing ideas, information, and interests in an atmosphere of collegiality.


We believe that collaboration is teamwork, cooperation, sharing and supporting each other while recognizing differences in teaching roles and philosophical views.


Learning is a way of life, challenging but worth the effort. We believe in fostering a love of learning by creating an educational community that sparks interesting, mind-expanding ideas with multi-sensory activities through which high expectations can be determined and realized.
