  • Stressing RELEVANCE between what the student does in the classroom and what he or she wants to do after graduation;
  • Being FLEXIBLE and INNOVATIVE in the ways we respond to the needs of the student and the community; and by
  • All members of the community COLLABORATING and SHARING in the responsibility of learning for our students.
