Mission Statement and Philosophy
Through a passion for student-centered learning, the Camden County School System will provide educational opportunities that will create students who can compete and flourish in an ever-changing society. We, the Camden County School System, recognize our responsibility to discover, nurture, and develop the potential of each student. We believe all children have the potential for learning and success. This success should involve all those who are talented, advanced, and gifted in an overall educational program.
It is belief of the Camden County School System that those who exhibit gifted behaviors exist within all ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups. Our purpose is to provide rigorous and relevant instruction for all students. We recognize that diverse needs require an array of service options in order to maximize the student’s opportunity to develop and show gifted behaviors. These services are essential for those students who are gifted but are not reaching their potential as well as those students with limited learning opportunities. We will encourage continuous staff development and collaboration among teachers, parents, administrators, students, and community members to better meet the needs of talented, advanced, and gifted students.
We must prepare all students to be continuous lifelong and independent learners who can survive in an ever-changing complex society. Our vision of stimulating independent goal-oriented thinkers will then be accomplished.
