At Marta Valle High School it is our core belief that all
students possess the intrinsic capabilities to achieve at high levels. As
educators, it is our primary responsibility to help students realize these
capabilities and ensure that all students are equipped with the knowledge and
skills to persist in college and careers with confidence and an awareness of how
they intend to contribute to our larger society.
To achieve our mission, the Marta Valle High School
community of educators emphasize professional learning, collaboration, and
providing all students with rigorous instruction within the realm of a
supportive and trusting environment. We foster positive relationships and
encourage socially responsible behaviors with all community stakeholders and
tailor our curriculum and instruction toward subjects that are academically rigorous
and culturally responsive to our students' needs. We also offer enrichment
opportunities that engage students and further support the educational process.
Through this framework of social emotional support and academic achievement,
guided by professional learning and collaboration, we believe that all students
at MVHS are provided with an educational experience that brings out their
unique capabilities and will lead to success in their lives beyond high school.
Theory of Action
If teachers engage students by providing rigorous,
authentic, culturally-responsive instruction, tasks, and assessments, then the
resulting student outcomes will either demonstrate mastery or be of sufficient
quality for teachers to identify student learning gaps to adjust instructional strategies
