Mission Statement

"The Cortland Enlarged City School District
values all community members as partners in creating a positive learning environment for all students.  This environment prepares all students to reach their fullest potential in becoming life-long learners, and successful, contributing members of the society in which they live."

Vision Statement

     Success is the product of a mutually supportive partnership between the school, family and community. Students and staff take pride and accept responsibility for the school, creating a safe and supportive environment. It is a culture where all are welcomed and accepted and interactions are positive and productive.

     Our instructional environment is engaging and relevant and reflects the best practices in instructional design and delivery, including 21st century skills. It allows teachers to work collaboratively within professional learning communities, promotes student engagement and participation in the school community and challenges and supports students at the individual level.

     The instructional environment is progressive and authentic through the use of technology and project based learning, promotes independent thinking and ensures teachers and students are continuous, self-directed learners.

     Our instructional environment uses assessment to drive instruction and results in all students graduating.

Guiding Values
