BARNUM SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENTIt is the Mission of Barnum School to create a healthy and safe environment where the total school community educates all students with the skills and knowledge needed to become literate, productive, and responsible adults and citizens.
We believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all of our students are:
cooperative, respectful and accepting of each other's differences
independent, self-reliant learners who are capable of making effective decisions
optimistic and believe in themselves and their own abilities
challenged, engaged and having fun learning
We also believe Barnum School will achieve this mission when all staff:
work cooperatively to establish a safe and healthy environment
work with children and parents to foster the belief that lack of education is not an option
have high expectations for all students
have a shared vision and values
are positive role models for the entire Barnum School community
engage parents in understanding their important role in educating their children.
