"The mission of Sandwich Public Schools is to provide each and every child with the core values, knowledge and skills needed to achieve full potential in his or her personal and work life and to contribute actively in our diverse and changing democratic society. We all share the responsibility to fulfill this mission.
Professional staff must recognize and respond to the intellectual capacity and learning style of each individual student. Individuals grow intellectually at different rates and in different ways. A complete education exposes all students to a wide range of learning opportunities to enable them to develop an awareness of their own specific style of learning. In keeping with the desire to place the student at the center of learning the teacher will also function as a facilitator and coach. All staff will establish an appropriate learning environment and provide feedback to allow each student the opportunity to master the developmentally appropriate academic, social and emotional skills for which the student is ready.
We believe that all children can learn and can meet high standards. This fundamental belief provides the foundation for establishing high expectations for all children with the goal that they will be able to lead productive, fulfilling, and successful lives in an increasingly complex, diverse and changing world.
The Sandwich Public Schools are committed to educational excellence. Our success depends upon all aspects of the community working together in a spirit of mutual support.
