Unit 4 Vision

Empowering each learner to thrive in a diverse and changing world.

Unit 4 Mission:

Positively transforming learning and life outcomes for students through educational justice, equity, and excellence.

Unit 4 Values:

In all we do, the Unit 4 learning community strives to live these core values. We are:

  • Focused on students. We challenge ourselves to place students at the center of every decision we make and seek to provide them with inspiring and enriching learning experiences every day. We take a holistic approach to child and youth development to ensure students meet their full potential.
  • Dedicated to our employees. We know that our educators, administrators, and staff make positive differences for our students every day through knowledge, hard work, and caring. We support our employees so they are equipped to help every student succeed.
  • Committed to equity and educational justice. We are intent on tearing down barriers to student learning and prioritizing students furthest from opportunity and groups of students who have historically been underserved in our schools. We thoughtfully consider and actively challenge societal norms that privilege some and not others.
  • Welcoming to families and the community. We know that parents and caregivers are students’ earliest and most important teachers so we engage families and community members for continuity of learning inside and outside of our schools’ walls. We believe diversity is our greatest strength and welcome and respect all stakeholders in our schools.
  • Devoted to safe and dynamic learning environments. We believe that the safety and wellbeing of our students, families, and staff come before anything else. We also believe that our schools must be places that inspire students and staff to explore, experiment, and learn.
