Every student has the right to be treated with respect and to be appreciated for his/her unique contributions to our school and community. Each student is held accountable for his/her actions. Students are reinforced and affirmed when they choose to apply skills learned to regulate their emotions and behavior. They do this by helping to support the success of others and by participating as an active member of the school community.
With our mission to foster the social, emotional, psychological, physical and intellectual well-being of each child, it is important not to let any of these aspects take precedence over their academic growth, too. Each student is placed in a class best suited to their academic and social needs with full-day programming, as well as Individualized Education Plans (IEP) and transition planning with their home districts.
Respect for self and others form the foundation for all interactions at NWSOIL. Respect for adults is expected and nurtured, just as adults treat students with respect. Student interactions are guided by respect for one another. This also helps to create a safe educational environment.
Students are expected to arrive well-groomed and appropriately dressed. They are also assessed on whether or not they are taking care of themselves. Students are expected to take care of themselves physically, emotionally, and behaviorally. When this is too difficult for the student alone, each student is encouraged to ask for staff support in an appropriate manner.
