Quality education for all

Mission

The mission of ADAPT/STRIVE is to provide a comprehensive, innovative, and developmentally appropriate curriculum enabling students to achieve measured progress in an environment of respect and high expectations.

Beliefs

  • We believe students deserve the opportunity to learn and achieve success, with equal access to a quality education.
  • We believe education is a shared responsibility and should take place in the home, at school, and in the community.
  • We believe students can learn; but they learn in different ways, at different rates, and with different styles achieved through a variety of teaching and learning techniques.
  • We believe decisions should be based on student needs and what is best for the students.
  • We believe the Northbrook Center building should be operated as a world-class, state of the art facility.
  • We believe in offering innovative programming, early intervention, and opportunities for family and volunteer involvement, parenting skills, and new ways of relating to our students.
  • We believe quality education requires quality staff, programs, facilities, equipment, and technology.
  • We believe all staff should have access to results-driven professional development training. Such training should be standards based, job-embedded, collaborative, and built on an organizational culture that insures continuous improvement.
