"Education is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire."
- William Butler Yeats
Learn – Build – Lead
We seek to learn. We pursue excellence through hard work and life-long learning. We recognize that different perspectives increase our understanding. We embrace what is already working and seek for ways to improve.
We seek to build. We seek to build bridges of collaboration to promote understanding and hope. We build individuals and place students as the top priority in decision-making.
We seek to lead. We lead forward to improve our own lives, enrich the lives of others, and improve the organizations of which we belong.
School District 215’s mission is to educate and prepare all learners to excel and become contributors in their communities by providing opportunities, skills and tools to communicate, solve problems, build bridges and lead.
We empower individuals to become builders and leaders who work hard, seek excellence in their own lives, and serve in their families and communities.
