Mission, Vision and Values

  • Our Vision:

    East Millbrook Academy of the Visual and Performing Arts encourages each individual student to work in a creative, cooperative and collaborative manner while promoting critical thinking through arts integration. 

    Our Mission:

    EMMMS will provide a relevant and engaging education and will graduate students who are collaborative, creative, effective communicators and critical thinkers.

    Core Beliefs:

    Every student is uniquely capable and deserves to be challenged and engaged in relevant, rigorous, and meaningful learning each day. 

    Every student is expected to learn, grow, and succeed while we will eliminate the ability to predict achievement based on socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity.

    Well-supported, highly effective, and dedicated principals, teachers, and staff are essential to success for all students.

    The Board of Education, superintendent, and all staff, while sustaining best practices, will promote and support a culture of continuous improvement, risk-taking, and innovation that results in a high-performing organization focused on student achievement.

    The Board of Education, superintendent, and all staff value a diverse school community that is inviting, respectful, inclusive, flexible, and supportive.

    At East Millbrook we value:
    • Individual learning styles
    • Health and wellness
    • Life-long learners
    • Character
