Our Mission:  
Working together with parents, staff and community members, Polk Central strives to be a safe and inviting place where all students can learn and grow.

Our Beliefs:
  • Student learning is the chief priority for the school.
  • All students can learn.
  • Teachers, administrators, parents and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission.
  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
  • Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support learning.
  • Curriculum and instructional practices should incorporate a variety of learning activities to accommodate differences in learning styles.
  • Exceptional students (e.g. Special Education, Limited English Proficiency, Gifted and Talented, etc.) require special services.
  • Challenging expectations increase individual performance.
