St. Anthony of Padua School:
We believe the purpose of a Catholic
school is to help children grow and learn within an integrated faith
We believe that each student can learn
and achieve his/her potential by being actively engaged in the learning
We believe teachers should be dedicated
to increasing student performance while adapting to students’ individual
academic needs and utilizing current teaching trends and technology.
We believe that teachers should relay
standards and objectives for each course taught and implement formal assessment
of student mastery for the core curriculum areas.
We believe intervention should result
from formal assessment of student achievement and should be designed to correlate
to specific student needs.
We believe continuous improvement
should be a major goal of teachers in instructing students; administrators in
setting the tone/path for the school; and, diocesan/district officials in
overseeing the school system.
We believe administrators, teachers, and parents should work
together to promote self-discipline within the students so that they may
develop their God-given potential and be prepared for their future roles as
responsible members of the Church, local, and global communities.
