Student learning is the chief priority for the school, and all students are capable of learning.
Because students learn in different ways, teachers should utilize a variety of teaching methods.
Students should assume personal responsibility in the learning process.
The school’s curriculum must continuously improve if students are to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.
Through cooperation among administrators, teachers, students, parents, and community, the school’s mission advances.
A safe and orderly school climate is conducive to student learning.

Harrison County School District
(Part A: No Child Left Behind Act of 2001)
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires school districts to publish report cards containing certain information. The required information falls into three general areas: school improvement, teacher qualifications, and test data. A school that fails to make adequate yearly progress in achievement must be identified for school improvement. The report must contain information about the professional qualifications of teachers in core academic subject areas [English, reading, language arts, science, mathematics, foreign languages, arts, civics and government, economics, history and geography]. Highly qualified teachers are those who satisfied the NCLB criteria during the school year. The report must also contain achievement data for specific subgroups, two-year achievement trends and student participation rates.
Please contact the principal of your child's school if you have questions about this report.
