Network of Performance Based Schools

Sullivan Heights Secondary Representatives for the NPBS.

Goals of Sullivan Heights Secondary:

   
  • The staff of Sullivan Heights Secondary School is committed to helping students develop the knowledge skills and attitudes that will prepare them to be citizens of the twenty-first century. To achieve this goal, we will design learning experiences that will help students:
    • develop oral and written communication skills, problem-solving skills, mathematical and scientific literacy, and the ability to work cooperatively with others.
    • learn to use technology to access, select, organize, evaluate, and apply information.
    • understand and begin to fulfill their role as citizens in an economically, socially, and culturally diverse local and global community.
    • use the processes of critical, creative and reflective thinking.
    • demonstrate goal setting, decision-making, and career planning skills, and the attributes of a responsible, self-directed life-long learner.
    • develop an appreciation of and an interest in the Fine Arts.
    • understand the need for physical, social, and emotional well-being.
