  • We believe in teaching the whole child. We value students for who they are and strive to give children different opportunities to shine.  We believe the optimal learning environment is one in which parents, educators and students work together to meet each child’s needs.  As educators, we inspire students to reach their fullest potential by fostering different learning styles and exploring multiple pathways to grow.
  • We believe in student centered learning. Students have a voice and choice in their learning and take responsibility for their own learning experiences. As educators, we make this possible by providing differentiated instruction and a rigorous curriculum for the mind and body. We also provide enrichment opportunities and support services in the visual and performing arts, in reading and writing, and in mathematics and science. We listen to students and we care. Students are actively engaged by participating in activities such as student council, student directed assemblies, student directed Free Fridays and by being student ambassadors, library pages and math team members. Students feel empowered as creators of the school RESPECT code. Students set learning goals and develop self discipline and independence.
  • We believe it is important to establish a sense of community within the school. The strengths of all are recognized, appreciated, supported and celebrated. Small learning communities are valued and are characterized by a feeling of mutual respect and trust. The environment is one that fosters and nurtures strong relationships among students and between staff and students. Celebrations are part of the school culture. Mast Landing is a joyful place for educators, students and families.
  • We believe that collaboration among educators and with parents is essential. The school culture provides multiple opportunities for educators to work and learn together. Educators are encouraged to try new things, share ideas and problem solve in order to provide the best learning environment for students and to push each other to continually grow as professionals. Student focused communication among educators and with parents is essential.
