    JPS Cultural Vision

    Every organization has a culture they want adopted, values they want championed, beliefs they want instilled, and behaviors they want reproduced. Leaders are the cultural architects of any organization. Eventually, every organization takes on the character and priorities of its leaders. As a result, leaders must be intentional in creating a culture endowed with the following beliefs:

    • All students can perform at or above proficiency.
    • We will never change what we are willing to tolerate.
    • We are accountable and responsible for performance and growth of our scholars.
    • All stakeholders are partners and owners of the school's academic success.
    • Recognition of accomplishments promotes an effective learning and work environment.
