As a staff, we believe that building relationships with our students enhances their ability to learn. This is evidenced by our grade level teams in which groups of teachers share the same students. This also allows those teachers to share a commonconference period where they can discuss the needs of the students they share. As a student, this means that their teachers will share similar classroom management policies. As a parent, you can contact any one of these teachers with a concern and know that it will be shared with all. This structure supports our mission statement.
"We believe that Clement Middle School should be a place where students welcome and respect diversity. Students will develop their potential through a variety of learning experiences. Our school should be a place where students want to come, and everyone is involved in the education of children, including parents and community members.
We believe that it is our responsibility to provide a safe and positive learning environment with a variety of opportunities to achieve success. It is our responsibility to motivate students, to promote wise choices, and to develop character. We believe that we must be role models who exemplify the excellence we encourage in students.
We believe that students want to feel like they belong and are accepted, that they want to be respected and treated fairly, and that they want to be recognized for their successes. We believe that students need rules, boundaries, structure, and consistency. We believe that students need to develop from dependent 6th graders in a nurturing, sheltered, protected environment, to independent 7th graders who are aware of their value as individuals, to responsible 8th graders who set long term goals, assume leadership roles, and leave middle school prepared for high school.
