- The high school graduation rate will increase to at least 90%.
- Testing at four grade levels will demonstrate that students have competence in challenging subject matter, and schools will ensure that all students learn to use their minds well in preparation for responsible citizenship.
- U.S. students will be the first in the world in science and mathematics achievement.
- Every adult American will be literate and will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in a global economy and to exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
- Every school in America will be free of drugs and violence and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning.
- The staff and administration at Three Rivers Middle School are committed to meet these goals.
Continued focus is given to goals 3, 4 and 6 throughout our building school improvement plans and
district school improvement plans to represent the true middle school
- Goal 3 – Three Rivers Middle School teachers work together to collectively provide instruction that will help students to master subject matter and to use.
- Goal 4 – The new Three Rivers Middle School math curriculum is in the third year of use. The McDougal Littell math program emphasizes hand-on experience, reading and problem solving to master math skills. This program also aligns with the high school curriculum and prepares students for success in high school math courses.
