GAVRIELA SCHOOLS’ educational programme is guided by five Core Values that define and shape our culture and environment.
1. CULTURE OF RESPECT
GAVRIELA’s culture of respect is expected between and among staff, parents, scholars and the communities in which we serve. Respect is reflected in GAVRIELA’s open door policy, a guiding principle in effect in our interpersonal relationships with stakeholders. Administrators and instructors are always available to talk to parents and guardians.
We believe it is the right, privilege and responsibility of each individual to contribute to and work in an environment of trust and cooperation.
2. HIGH EXPECTATIONS
GAVRIELA believes that the utilization of data helps instructors and school leaders develop targeted instructional strategies for excellence. GAVRIELA uses school-wide instructional monitoring to ensure that academic expectations are being met consistently throughout the year.
Since instructional materials are provided to instructors to facilitate seamless teaching, instructors are held accountable for student performance.
3. SAFE AND NURTURING ENVIRONMENT
GAVRIELA is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our scholars to learn. As soon as a child walks through the door, GAVRIELA promotes a sense of well-being and warmth. A goal at GAVRIELA is to provide a safe haven for children. We aim to provide a place where learning takes place and students gain a sense of acceptance and pride.
4. FOCUS ON THE WHOLE CHILD
In order to prepare students to be successful, we believe that we must also expose children to art,culture, physical fitness and a broader education that encompasses more than core academic subjects.
Under the leadership of our Proprietress and Director of Studies, GAVRIELA employs a team of highly qualified individuals that specifically support the social and emotional needs of our students. GAVRIELA aims to provide an optimal learning environment for all students and remains committed to focusing on the positive development of our scholars.
5. FAMILY INVOLVEMENT
GAVRIELA fundamentally understands the importance of partnering with families to fully develop the potential of each scholar. We believe it takes a community- family members, educators, role models and other children- to create and sustain a supportive, productive and engaging learning environment.
