Mission & Vision

Our mission is to create a sanctuary where all members of the learning community are partners and show by example their commitment to the School Lane Charter School Vision of high achievement, lifelong and active learning, diversity and equity, international mindedness, and collaborative problem solving.

Our vision is that every member of the SLCS community (students, parents, staff, and Board) and all who enter this school community will enter into a sanctuary.

Our sanctuary is a safe, physically protected, and emotionally literate place that serves as a healing environment from the negative aspects of the outside world.  Everyone who is affected by the school environment is also responsible for creating, modeling, and maintaining school safety:

  • Physical

  • Psychological

  • Social

  • Moral/Ethical

In our sanctuary, the needs of the children come first.  No child is expendable.  Everyone is recognized as having a capacity for learning with unique patterns for learning.  Every child is recognized as gifted.  Our responsibility is to help them to discover their giftedness and learn to use their minds well.  Our expectation is of high achievement for all.

Our sanctuary is a community of learners where active learning is facilitated, students develop a love of learning, and everyone is a life-long learner.  Each member is empowered to take responsibility for his/her own learning and growth.

In our sanctuary, diversity is honored and celebrated.  Multicultural education, global awareness, and equity are practiced.

In our sanctuary, everyone is worthy of respect and all voices are heard.  Positive school growth is achieved through parent partnering and collaborative problem solving.

SLCS is a school of choice where teachers use innovation to empower and motivate students to believe that they can be whatever they want to be.

Through positive attitudes and flexible thinking, each of us can make a difference.

This is our vision.  This is why we are here.
