Guiding Principles
  • Respect for cultural diversity enables students
    to better understand self and others.
  • School staff, parents, students, and the
    community will work together to establish a safe
    and supportive learning environment.
  • All students are valued individuals with unique
    physical, social, intellectual, and emotional
  • There is an emphasis on high standards and
    expectations that all students can learn and
    achieve their highest potential through quality
    learning experiences.
  • Students learn best when there is a focused
    curriculum that incorporates cooperative
    learning, problem solving, and critical thinking

Guiding Principles Staff Beliefs
  • All staff members contribute to Treadwells
    friendly, inviting environment. We set the tone
    through our actions and attitudes. Our beliefs
    are evident as we demonstrate our continuous
    support and encouragement of students, parents,
    and community.
  • All must be treated with dignity and respect.
  • Students should be taught the skills and
    behaviors necessary for success through modeling
    and explicit instruction.
  • Students should be taught to respect the opinions
    and beliefs of others through modeling and
    explicit instruction.
  • Motivation and responsibility should be

Guiding Principles Values

  • We will build self-esteem/confidence in students
  • We will model how goals/expectations look
    throughout the year.

  • The Treadwell community promotes high quality
    instruction and exceptional academic achievement.
    Our community produces a safe learning
    environment which is based upon agreed routines
    and procedures. In addition, we use data to drive
    all academic and non academic decisions.
    Treadwell teachers deliver high quality learning
    experiences that are data driven and
    scientifically based, thereby preparing our
    students to meet and/or exceed local, national,
    and global standards.

  • We will equip Treadwell students to be able to
    excel academically and apply their knowledge to
    real-world situations. When our students have
    not met agreed upon goals, we (the educators)
    will use our data to reflect collaboratively with
    our Treadwell learning community to design a plan
    of instruction based on the data findings and use
    best practices and strategies for re-teaching to
    ensure and promote academic success.
