Core Values

Pentucket students and staff work together as a community to fuel a passion for learning and academic excellence. We encourage the skillful application of knowledge, challenging ourselves to be healthy, responsible, and respectful members of our local and global community.

Beliefs About Learning

We believe that..

  • Students learn best when they are given choices, see authentic applications,and actively engage in their learning.
  • Persistence in response to challenges is modeled and expected.
  • Literacy is an essential building block.
  • We are a community of life-long learners with individual needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles and this is reflected in the school’s curriculum, instruction, assessment and extracurricular offerings.
  • Each member of our learning community should adapt to the ever-changing technological learning tools and their use.
  • Our learning community - students, parents, faculty, and staff - all share collective responsibility for promoting students’ success and physical, social,and emotional well-being.
