Maynard High School Core Values and Beliefs

Maynard High School is a community of adult and student learners who believe that 
students learn best in a safe environment where there is mutual respect between faculty, 
students, administrators, and community members. We further believe that students 
need to be provided with the opportunity and means to become effective communicators 
and to attain competency in content areas through curricula and instruction that offer 
opportunities to reflect, refine, and develop real world 21st  century skills. We believe
that 
collaboration with parents and the community best supports the academic and
personal 
growth of our students as they become active members of society.
