The Berlin Public Schools are committed to the belief that all students must be given appropriate opportunities to achieve clearly defined, meaningful, and rigorous standards which include those outlined in the New Hampshire curriculum Frameworks. We further believe that the learner is the focus of all of our efforts and that the evolution of our programs will be guided by data that reflect what each learner knows and is able to accomplish.
Each of the programs in the Berlin Public Schools will emphasize depth of understanding and the active participation of students in the learning process. We will capitalize on the power of technology as a motivational information source and as a problem-solving tool by integrating appropriate technologies within each program area.
Our vision cannot be attained if the Berlin Public Schools must act alone. We and our students are part of a larger learning community. Parents and the community at large must share in the responsibility to educate our youth. The community must provide the resources necessary to support the schools and must also help students value learning in all its contexts - within school and outside of the formal educational setting. Community members can best help students see that the process of becoming a competent member of the local and global communities is one of continuous progress that lasts a lifetime.
