Six Essential Questions
Helping to prepare our students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose — college, career, and beyond is only possible if we know exactly how we are doing.
Data helps us understand what our true impact is, what is working, and what needs to be improved. Our Six Essential Questions provide a yardstick by which to measure our progress, keep us focused as we grow, and—most important—help us keep the promises we make to our students and their families.
