Beliefs of HHS


Student learning is the chief priority for the school.
Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.
Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
A student’s self-esteem is enhanced by positive relationships and mutual respect among and between students and staff.
A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes student learning.
Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission.
The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.
