Vision

Our vision is to engage young people in an educational journey that enables them to experience the world with open minds, to think critically; and believe they have the skills, capacity, and creativity to make contributions to their community and world.

Core Beliefs

Instruction is an active process involving both teachers and students. Effective practices engage multiple learning styles and intelligences that enable students to construct their own meanings.

Assessment is authentic, meaningful and embedded so that students reflect on their learning.  It is used to drive instruction.

Curriculum is articulated, integrated, innovative, personalized and intriguing. Furthermore, it is aligned to grade level, district, and state frameworks supported by a rich base of materials and resources.  It is a combination of process and content that is relevant and applicable to the student.

Grizzly Norms

We will do our BEST to be:

• Respectful “To appreciate and value others!”

• Responsible “To demonstrate good judgment”

• Safe “To guard against physical & mental injury or risk”

Emergency and Safety Information

Keeping our students and staff safe at school is a top priority. Bellingham Public Schools coordinates with all local emergency responders to ensure our procedures and plans for fire, earthquake, lockdowns and other drills are current and reflect best practices for student safety.
