Mission and Vision Statement

Kendrick Middle School Philosophy

Kendrick Middle School is committed to providing an environment that emphasizes the self-worth and dignity of each individual. We believe that teaching and learning are enhanced in an atmosphere of mutual respect. It is the responsibility of the faculty to be sensitive to the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical aspects of the adolescent. Kendrick Middle School is self-renewing. We encourage collegiality and see it as a needed condition for staff communication and coordination. This self-renewing concept enables the school to cultivate an ongoing capacity to self-critique and self-improve, particularly in the contemporary high-standards-emphasizing environment. Recognizing the unique developmental characteristics of the middle school child, we strive to provide appropriate learning experiences and interpersonal communication. We work to facilitate a smooth, gradual transition between elementary and high school programs. In order to encourage our students to be contributing and productive citizens, we believe that the Kendrick Middle School’s faculty, parents, and community must work as a team to prepare adolescents to develop goals, meet challenges, and pursue aspirations.
