Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s merely the beginning. As a Gator you’ll learn to see beyond the horizon.
Mandeville Primary’s most recent strategic plan employs powerful data from virtually all school stakeholder groups as they identified the core values and core features that bind the Mandeville Primary School community together. The plan also calls for board expansion, well underway. It also calls for the completion of the school campus, a far-sighted vision that is almost complete. Our biggest work, which is ongoing and permanent, is providing the inspiration and role modeling necessary to enable all our stakeholder groups to embrace, work, and live in accordance with our values. Of course, turning theory into action has always been the forté at Mandeville Primary.
Our teachers not only to teach curricula and skills, but to prioritize values and qualities we believe that our students, and our nation and world, will need later in the century: courage, compassion, and resourcefulness. These values and qualities will set them apart in the future as they assume the leadership roles they are bound for: a passion for the process of discovery; a natural sense of communicating collaboratively in class, across cultures, and in online groups; an ability to organize and present complex portfolios and exhibits; and a sense of the connectedness of their daily work with its impact on the larger world. These are “millennial skills,” and our school organization is better positioned to convey them than any other model we can find.
With an eye to the future, we continue to build and broaden the leadership capacity of our faculty as a whole and, in particular, among our teams, centers, and departmental heads. With energetic and far-sighted leadership coming from our Student Advisory Board, our leadership team, our programming team, our department chairs, our Board of Trustees and its standing committees, our Parent Association, as well as the most solid, experienced, passionate staff and faculty we’ve ever had, our students and families are in very good hands.
The school is positioned well. As our reputation for extraordinary quality and results penetrates deeper into the region and demand for what we and no others can do. The school now has full enrollment and long waiting lists, attracts passionate and compassionate faculty members, and holds a powerful mission and vision to support us as we approach the future, united in a single, simple credo: Our students mean the world to us.
