    At the core of our division's new strategic plan is C5W, the set of skills and abilities that all Spartans will possess to succeed in further education, work and citizenship. C5W encompasses communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship and wellness, and embodies the philosophy of preparing students to become not just 21st Century Learners, but All Century Learners. 



    C5W - All Centuries All Learners

    • Communication

      All Century Learners express and exchange our thoughts and ideas effectively using oral, written, and nonverbal communication skills in a variety of contexts. We engage in discussion and debate, ask thoughtful, respectful questions, and listen actively to others.


      All Century Learners engage positively with others to achieve common goals. We actively participate in this process through deliberation, encouragement, flexibility, reflection, responding to constructive criticism, and honoring the strengths in others and in ourselves.

      Critical Thinking

      All Century Learners engage in inquiry, experimentation, and problem solving. We research and use credible sources and methods to evaluate, justify our thinking, and develop solutions for real world challenges.


      All Century Learners develop and use inventive and imaginative processes to construct innovative ideas and original work. We consider issues from a variety of perspectives and look for solutions that demonstrate improvement, new understandings, and divergent thinking.


      All Century Learners strive to make a positive impact in our community and the world through acts of service and by demonstrating compassion, empathy, respect, and integrity. We celebrate diversity, honor our environment, and participate in our democracy.


      All Century Learners seek balance in a safe environment by attending to physical, emotional, and intellectual needs. We strive to be resilient and self-aware, and to make healthy, conscious choices in the best interest of ourselves and others.
