The mission of J.F. Drake Middle School, the collaborative community navigating students through educational and social transitions, is to ensure each student develops the confidence, character, and skills to become independent thinkers through a system distinguished by:
- Safe and nurturing environments
- Stakeholders engaged in the education and social development process
- Rigorous academic challenges that are incorporated into innovative and diverse learning experiences
- Personal integrity and respect of others
- Inspired learners who are globally, socially, and emotionally responsible
Strategic planning, defined as a method by which a community continuously creates artifactual systems to serve extraordinary purposes, has been approached as both a discipline and a process. With an intent to generate innovation and creativity and with a respect to the established traditions and reputation for excellence, it is the purpose of this plan to serve the students and community with a commitment to unprecedented possibilities and continuous discovery.
