We will ensure a safe, caring environment where students are engaged in learning and are inspired to achieve to their fullest potential.


Bear is a place where every student is motivated to become a creative and critical thinker and to develop a strong foundation for lifelong learning.



For Bear Exploration Center’s staff to be successful in this mission, we believe that: 

·  Every individual has a right to a quality education;

·  Every individual can learn and deserves to be educated to the best of his or her  ability;

· Every individual deserves to work and learn in a safe, clean, supportive, moral, and stimulating environment; 

·  Every individual is unique, worthy, and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect;

·  Every individual can be a lifelong learner who not only knows but knows how to find out;

·  Every individual needs to be held accountable for his or her own actions;

·  Every individual needs developmentally appropriate learning activities and challenging expectations at all levels to increase performance; 

·  Every individual needs to be a creative and critical thinker; and 

·  Educators, parents, students, and the community share the responsibility for the support of the school’s mission.
