Mission Vision and Values

Mission
Our mission is to prepare students to be productive and responsible members of a democratic society by promoting excellence through academic achievement.

Vision
I. Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

At FHC stakeholders will work collaboratively to provide its students with educational excellence. The district curriculum and state standards will provide a baseline for academic expectations and preparing students for life. Classroom instruction will be driven by effective research-based strategies. We will monitor student learning through the PLC process of evaluating assessment data.

II. Climate
FHC will maintain a diverse and creative learning environment that promotes a sense of mutual responsibility and respect. We will continue our commitment to maintaining the emotional and physical safety of all stakeholders. Open and ongoing communication is expected among all members of our school community. Individual and collective effort and achievement will be recognized and celebrated.

III. Community Engagement
FHC will strive to develop a strong commitment between the community and the school by providing opportunities for students to serve and participate within the extended community. The school will serve as a learning resource to the community and will, in turn, call upon the extended community to support our mission and vision.
