Location Description

MISSION STATEMENT

Overall we exist to provide an outstanding education to those who have not thrived in a traditional learning environment. Glenforest meets the academic and social needs of students with learning differences; empowering them to realize self-worth and achieve their full potential. This mission, which was modified in 2005 and approved by the School Board, supports our beliefs.

In 1983, Glenforest was founded as Distinctive Education Center (DEC) with the mission of providing educational opportunities for students in Grades 1 through 12. It was also understood that each child had experienced difficulties in other educational settings due to their respective learning differences.

BELIEFS
•We believe in the inherent worth of each student.
•We believe that all students can learn.
•We believe that each student is entitled to receive instruction in a manner which enables him/her to learn and progress academically.
•We believe that students, in addition to academic instruction, must be taught understanding and tolerance for each other.
•We believe that all students are entitled to a non-disruptive environment in which to learn.
•We believe that parental involvement and commitment are essential for each student to be successful.
