A great year of learning lies ahead of us! At Princeton, students and staff, are ALL learners. We constantly work hard, try new things, get feedback on our progress, refine our work and our actions, do it again, and move onto the next steps in our learning journey.
Each journey is unique. We challenge each other to be the best we can, to accept our own and others’ strengths and weaknesses. We celebrate success. We see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of learning. Part of this journey includes the need for students to be accountable for their own conduct and for the development of positive relationships with others. We assume responsibility for ourselves as learners; let all learn and let all teach!
Each journey is much more than a list of simple facts. Students need to be competent in many areas and will be tasked with solving the problems of today, while imagining and creating a new tomorrow. Critical thinking, collaborating, managing information, and developing cultural and global citizenship are all vital. These competencies are critical for equipping students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they will need to successfully navigate their personal journeys in learning, living, and working.
Each journey starts with walking through a door, sometimes into the unknown, sometimes into the familiar. Together with parents and families, students and staff will unlock doors into further learning and understanding. We look forward to our journey together!
