The mission of Las Puertas is to establish a learning community which assures that all students are college ready, successful in their postsecondary endeavors, and contributing members of the community.
We know that the keys to creating a positive learning environment are to:
We also know that people succeed better when they:
Our approach to education is designed to respond to all of these and create a learning environment that is highly rigorous, relevant to the lives of our students and where StrengthBuilding relationships are the norm.
StrengthBuilding is a process for working with people to create positive change and achieve their goals. StrengthBuilding changes how people relate to one another.
It teaches us how to focus on what the individual can accomplish, how strengths
can be used in positive ways.
Everyone is born with strengths. Sometimes that’s hard to remember when all we ever talk about is what’s wrong with our world and the people around us. StrengthBuilding challenges us to focus on the strengths of the individual…on our own strengths.
At Las Puertas, StrengthBuilding will define how school staff interacts with students, families and each other. The school will be a place of warmth and support. We will have high expectations for everyone, staff and students alike. We will help you to accomplish your goals and be as excited as you are when you do!
Please join us as we create and embark on all aspects of the school: curriculum, school climate, family involvement, community partnerships, college and business connections. We want your ideas and your talents as we shape this remarkable learning community.
