Bear Exploration Center for Mathematics, Science, and Technology


The mission of Bear Exploration Center, the premiere elementary magnet school for mathematics, science, and technology, is to ensure a safe and caring student-centered higher level learning environment with an enriched curriculum so each student can achieve his or her highest potential, develop a strong foundation for lifelong learning, and become a highly motivated, accepting individual who is able to perform in our ever-changing technological society, with the support of students, parents, educators, and the community. 


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.
