Mission: Ghent School's mission is to develop students who are highly motivated, mature and self-confident; who possess well-developed personal and social skills and demonstrate excellent learning behaviors.
In encouraging students to effectively work independently and in teams, always showing support and concern for others.
In establishing and maintaining a school-wide focus- at every grade level and in every content area - based on authentic, engaging instruction to ensure the development of life-long college and career ready learners.
That the true measure of a school is not in its building or resources, but in the strength and effectiveness of the people who make up the school community.
