SCHOOL DISTRICT MISSION STATEMENT AND PHILOSOPHY

Mission Statement

The mission of the Carthage R-9 School District is to provide comprehensive educational experiences that will empower all students to become lifelong learners and productive, informed, responsible citizens who are able to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing society.

Philosophy

We Believe the district should provide an excellent, professional faculty, administration and support staff which will utilize the resources of the community to fulfill its mission and that the district should provide facilities that are modern, well-maintained and designed to enhance the educational process. We Believe that our curriculum and instruction should give students the opportunity to reach their full potential and personal goals, provide for their individual differences and interests, and guide them in selecting meaningful educational and career choices. We Believe the focus of the educational process should be on student learning and the continual striving to raise the expectations and standards of academic achievement. We Believe that students, parents and the community share with the district the privileges and responsibilities of a comprehensive education which represents a vital contribution to the success and development of both the students and the community.

We Believe the district should be proactive in the planning and pursuit of educational excellence.
