CORE VALUES & BELIEFS
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.
