Our Mission Statement

We welcome all children to Center/Sylvester School where everyone is considered important and treated with dignity. We believe our students are capable of high academic achievement. We build confidence in learning. We are dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each student. Excellence is built into our commitment to high expectations and standards.

Our goal is to ensure a quality education for our children by stressing high expectations for learning and behavior, by developing a desire to learn, and by offering challenging opportunities to acquire basic skills, as well as, opportunities to explore and grow in other areas. We strive to provide every opportunity for maximum student achievement and for recognition and stimulation of special talents in all students. In addition to a solid academic foundation, an observance of the ordinary and necessary rules of health and safety, the formation of quality work habits, and the development of positive social attitudes are essential to the educational well-being of our students.

We provide a supportive, caring environment that develops self-esteem, self-motivation, and a sense of responsibility. We utilize the best instructional practices and resources and we provide opportunities for the professional development of staff. We recognize that parents are partners in this mission and we invite them to join together with us for successful achievement of this mission.
