Statement of Mission
Eagle Hill School educates students identified with learning (dis)abilities by providing an intimate and encouraging community that honors the individual, values learning diversity, and fosters personal and social growth.
Eagle Hill School believes:
- that every student can learn.
- that every person who interacts with a student is a teacher.
- that learning differently demands teaching differently.
- that the foremost responsibility for pedagogical decisions lies with individual teachers.
- that all teachers should have the necessary resources for implementing the curriculum.
- that parent partnerships are an essential component in the pursuit of academic and social development.
- that we must encourage students to learn about learning and to form their own beliefs in a search for intellectual autonomy.
- that the exploration of the arts and exposure to athletics and physical fitness are essential components in the development of independent, curious, and critical thinkers.
- that we should cultivate in our students a sense of moral responsibility for their thoughts and actions
- that we should inspire our students to be global students who embrace the differences in the world that they will inherit
