  • Set clear, high expectations for behavior and academic achievement with measured, consistent accountability,
  • Provide a welcoming and safe environment,
  • Communicate and collaborate effectively and regularly,
  • Promote leadership at all levels, and
  • Encourage a growth mindset with a passion for learning through exploration and experimentation.
