Our Learning

Core Beliefs about Learning

ONE: We believe that all humans want to learn or can learn, and that learning is an essential, innate, ongoing, and lifelong process.


Therefore we:

  • Expect that all people can learn
  • Maintain appropriate expectations that challenge all learners.
  • Share their passion for learning.
  • Regard all interactions as teaching/learning opportunities.
  • Model curiosity and persistence.




  • The primary purpose for assessment is to improve learning.
  • Assessment provides all learners with the capacity to demonstrate what they know, value, and are able to do
