Belief Statements:

  • As a community we are committed to the success of all Manchester Valley High School students.

  • Education is the responsibility of the school, student, family and our entire community.
  • We can assist students in developing positive relationships with community members who will serve as their mentors and allow them to participate in apprenticeships to develop the specific hard skills related to their particular career field or job.
  • As alumni, local businesses, members of higher education and the community we can foster the development of essential interpersonal skills such as reliability, respect, integrity, timeliness, a good work ethic, idea sharing, perseverance, strong character, self-discipline and flexibility while serving as mentors for our students.
  • We can work within our community to coordinate resources which will be helpful to our students.
  • We can inspire students in the development of their creativity and their spirit of innovation.
  • We can help students aspire to reach their full potential by establishing these relationships with them.
