Growth Mindset


Fixed Mindset
The belief that skills, intellect, and talents are set and unchangeable.



Growth Mindset
The belief that skills, intellect, and talents can be developed through practice and perseverance. 


I'll stick to what I know. Either I'm good at it or not. Desires I want to learn new things. I am eager to take risks.
It's fine the way it is. There is nothing to change. Skills Is this really my best work? What else can I improve?
This is a waste of time; there's a lot to figure out. Effort I know this will help me even though it is difficult.
It's easier to give up. I'm not really smart. Setbacks I'll use another strategy; my mistakes help me learn.
This work is boring. No one likes to do it. Feedback I recognize my weakness, and I know how to fix it.
It's easy for him or her. They were born smart. Talented Peers I wonder how they did it. Let me try to figure it out.

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.
