Support of students for learning is our first priority. All children can learn and should have equal opportunities for learning.
Teamwork is promoted and manifested at all levels throughout the District (staff, parents, students, Board, community). MSD is a "we" district, we succeed as a team.
We treat each other with respect and understanding; we recognize the uniqueness of each other and promote behaviors that enhance self-esteem (students and adults).
Decision-making and problem-solving involve the collaboration of those affected and should reflect our goals.
We seek and support the most qualified employees to promote district excellence at every level.
Schools and classrooms foster learning by being clean, safe, and attractive.
We place high worth on the value of education, which is matched by high expectations for the performance of students, staff and parents.
