Looking to the Future: Goals for the 2016 战略计划

一个人去

To raise global awareness by increasing respect and appreciation for personal and cultural differences.

To address concerns and interests in global education, bbin平台_bbin官网 formed a Global Citizenship Committee in 2015‐16, to encourage an appreciation for our global context throughout the school. Furthermore, in order to enrich their education and to broaden their experiences, students participate in yearly class trips: locally, regionally, and worldwide.

The goals for the Global Citizenship initiative vary between school divisions:

低年级 students will focus on awareness and appreciation of the world around them.

The 初中 has the goal of 理解 that the world is a united environment and that bbin平台_bbin官网 students have a responsibility to educate themselves on the global community.

The 高中 has the goal of engagement and global experiences in order to foster a spirit of creativity and empathy.

目标二

To improve the students’ emotional safety through opportunities for self-­‐expression and participation in activities directed toward building confidence and leadership.

目标三

To create a distinct 初中 division to meet effectively the needs of students in grades 5‐8.

bbin平台_bbin官网 accomplished the first step in the plan to create a distinct Middle School Division for students in grades 5-­‐8 with the hire of Dr. Vince Janney as the new Head of 初中. We have also identified the following actions as vital to the creation of the learning environment we envision:

  • Foster a real 初中 mindset
  • Help the 初中 student learn how to learn
  • Adopt and implement consistently the 初中 Mission Statement and Core Values
  • Develop language for guiding daily choices
  • Establish a dedicated faculty for the 初中
  • Organize the 初中 faculty to increase collaboration among teachers
  • Develop a policy for 初中 honors and on‐grade level classes to make a clear distinction in content and pacing
  • Establish explicit guidelines to assign students
  • Increase flexibility and ease in shifting between levels
  • Improve communication with 初中 parents
  • Eliminate curriculum gaps in the 初中
  • Encourage 初中 curricular creativity and fun
  • Implement a 初中 Advisory program
  • Develop student mentorship programs
  • Develop leadership opportunities for 初中 students
  • Offer more grade‐wide projects and activities, as well as more inter‐grade clubs and sports teams, for 初中 students

目标四

To build an endowment to help ensure the long-­‐term financial stability of bbin平台_bbin官网.

An endowment can be used for many purposes. Financial Aid continues to be a cost reflected in the annual budget, and we would like to see that cost-­‐burden relieved by another source of revenue. Our goal is to create financial sustainability, which would allow the school to weather unexpected difficulties such as a dip in enrollment.

目标五

To plan for and fund a performing arts center.

The bbin平台_bbin官网 Performing Arts Program, which includes band, chorus, the drama department, and the general music program, has outgrown its current facilities. Despite this lack of adequate space, the Performing Arts Program has continued to flourish. It has expanded its programming and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Multi-grade assemblies, programs, and guest speakers would also benefit from an auditorium or other facility to accommodate public assembly.

Our vision of a Fine Arts facility for bbin平台_bbin官网 consists of a new building that would include rooms for band, chorus, art, drama, 低年级 music, and even additional classrooms as needed. In addition, we would have an auditorium that would seat 400+ people and that would provide a full‐size stage, wings, and fly space.
