School Mission Statement

We, the Virginia Parks Community, will provide the foundational building blocks for all students to progress towards mastery of academic standards in a safe and encouraging environment. Students will master the standards and develop skills of critical thinking and problem solving, so they become self-sufficient, productive, life-long learners.

In order to accomplish our goals Virginia Parks students will:

*excel in basic skills of reading, math, language arts, social studies and science
*become technologically literate
*develop good communication skills
*be critical thinkers and problem solvers
*be able to access and search for information using a variety of resources
*strive towards physical and emotional wellness
*become environmentally knowledgeable and globally aware
*be artistically balanced
*have positive values reinforced
*work in harmony with peers and adults
