We encourage and empower one another’s creativity, diversity, and strengths to increase achievement. There is mutual respect, support, and appreciation for students, families, and staff. The school is a safe place, physically, socially, and educationally. All of these qualities are transferred to the everyday lives of everyone in the school community, which creates a positive and lasting impression within the school and outward to our global society.


Students are provided with clear, high academic and behavioral expectations. The school addresses the students’ needs and concerns. Students’ needs are met through a standards-based curriculum and activities that promote self-worth, confidence, motivation, and a positive attitude. Students apply critical thinking skills to both academics and their daily lives. Progress is monitored through quality, on-going assessments which are analyzed and utilized for differentiation of instruction. Kornblum students take responsibility for their actions. They work collaboratively with staff, peers, and families to reach and/or surpass state standards. Our students comprehend at a proficient or advanced level of thinking. They leave our school with a developed love of learning.

There is successful, mutually respectful, and supportive collaboration between families, staff, and students through honest, complete, and objective communication. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the school community. They are educated through organizations, events, and classes. Families know what is expected of their child and the school. The families and the school combine efforts to create a positive and outstanding environment for all.
