WHAT IS SANKOFA?
A collaborative school culture focused on student learning, character development and a commitment to renewing the local community through hope, healing and high-quality education.
We are creating an environment that is safe, nurturing and seeks to meet the students' academic, social and emotional needs through mastery learning, mindfulness and a rigorous education.
TRANSFORMATIONAL SCHOOL CULTURE
When a school has a healthy culture, the professionals within it will seek the tools they need to accomplish their goal of universal student achievement; they will give a school new life by overcoming the staff division that halts transformation.
It takes a village! Our teachers, staff, families, community partners and leaders are all in this work to ensure that our children have support wrapping around them.
We intentionally provide professional development opportunities daily, weekly and monthly for our team members to grow and become the best. Taking care of our staff is a major factor in moving the needle with our students and their academic growth.
OUR STRATEGIC FOCUS
We believe that children must first possess a strong character before they can begin to gain other forms of knowledge and wisdom.
We believe that positive school culture ensures that academic achievement has a place to grow.
We believe that all students can build intellective capacity to become independent learners, critical thinkers and problem solvers.
