The mission of Alta Heights School is to promote academic and social growth for all students, encouraging life-long learning in an ever changing world.

We believe that parents, teachers, staff and community members support our students with purposeful work and supportive relationships to ensure that our students leave our school as confident, creative, life-long learners who communicate and collaborate effectively and think critically. To ensure this, we:

  • Commit to a safe, engaging, and respectful environment where students are encouraged to be risk takers and individuals are valued.
  • Have high expectations for student achievement and social growth for all students.
  • Focus resources for interventions and enrichment to meet the needs of our diverse students.
  • Value collaborative time to share and examine teaching strategies and data, to develop professionally, and continually refine our teaching practices to enhance ongoing student learning.
