Core Values


We envision self-driven students and adults who develop the skills, habits, and mindsets to impact communities and invent the future. We support one another in achieving step-by-step excellence along the way. 


Diversity strengthens and enlivens us. Dissatisfied yet optimistic, we bring a lens of equity and inclusion to each decision and each day.


All of Washington is our team. We are powerful when we work together, so we build relationships based on empathy and strive together towards outstanding outcomes for all public school students. 


We approach each day as an opportunity to learn and grow. We work hard towards our own just-right goals, cheering each other on as we redefine potential.


We celebrate. We wonder. We ask. We make and invent and imagine. We play big. 


In the tiny and the huge, we keep the end in mind and reflect on the potential effects of our choices.
