Introducing the Curriculum
Here at Transform school, our vision is for students to be in a safe, caring, and educational environment that focuses on high expectations, critical reasoning and logical problem solving. We strive to meet the needs of all students by continually collecting, analyzing and acting on student performance data. Our goal is to improve teaching and learning by challenging our students and inspiring them to reach their full potential and be on the path to being college and career ready. With the school, home and community working together, our students will achieve academic excellence and become productive citizens of the 21st century.
