CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOL VISION
Every Chicago Public Schools student in every neighborhood will be engaged in a rigorous, well-rounded instructional program and will graduate prepared for success in college, career and life.
Promoting and supporting high achievement for all students is the primary mission of Fernwood Elementary School. To accomplish this mission, we believe that it is the responsibility of the school to provide a student-centered, comprehensive, safe and caring learning environment for all children. Moreover, the mission of Fernwood Elementary School includes the development of confident, competent children who are well-prepared for college and/or careers in a culturally diverse democratic society.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
• We believe strongly in achieving excellence and equity for every child.
• We believe that every child has talent and has something valuable to contribute to our society and to other people.
• We expect our professional staff to be performance-oriented in helping students meet today's problems as well as the challenges of tomorrow.
• We believe that if this is accomplished, children will then come to realize more fully their own potential as individuals and be better prepared to appreciate and act responsibly in the society in which they live.
