WMS Mission, Vision & IKAIR Core Values
Vision: Waimea Middle School – A Place of Infinite Possibilities
Mission: “Waimea Middle School empowers all students with the skills, values, and cultural understanding to successfully navigate high school and beyond.”
Our beliefs about teaching and learning at WMPCCS:
Student success is a responsibility shared by all stakeholders: students, families, teachers and staff, administrators and the community.
All students are unique and deserve a rigorous, creative and nurturing school environment that encourages them to realize their individual goals and aspirations as they move through the formative middle school years.
Students benefit from learning opportunities that are culturally relevant and encourage appreciation and respect for diversity.
It is the school’s shared responsibility to develop students’ critical thinking skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
Quality curriculum and instruction, as well as ongoing assessment, are critical elements for student success.
