Armour School Board Mission

Mission Statement

The Armour School District, in partnership with the community, will provide each student the opportunity to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially in a safe and orderly environment

Vision Statement

The Armour School will provide a learning environment which is conducive to developing the unique intellectual, social, physical and emotional potential of each child. We will be responsive to the learning styles of every child because we believe all children can learn. We believe that high expectations are fundamental to peak performance. We are committed to developing life long learners who can compete in a global society.

Armour’s school vision is built upon the principle of the school as a community of learners and leaders. Teachers and support staff are valued members in a learning environment where cooperation, teamwork and continuous professional growth are expected. Teachers work as collaborative teams when planning curriculum; they design and implement an academic program that is appropriate at their grade level. Teachers enhance the program with their own creativity.

An essential component of the school vision is the school/community connection. We view parents as friends and colleagues and together we appreciate the broad diversity in our community. Staff and parents will play a critical role in developing a school where children are successful and thriving.
