School Philosophy

Johnny Bright staff is committed to creating a Professional Learning Community that supports all students learning at high levels.  Teachers are focused on building a collaborative environment centered on essential learning outcomes, common assessments and best practices. Project-based and innovative, authentic learning opportunities assist in building a setting where students demonstrate active learning and are engaged.  We value all stakeholders and believe we share a collective responsibility in building a safe, secure and caring environment. 

In a technology rich environment, staff provides students and parents with a variety of opportunities to communicate.  As a GOLD L.E.E.D. School we are committed to a “green” footprint – our largely paperless communication relies on SchoolZone, our weekly Friday Update and our Web site.  Students will be provided with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and develop 21st Century Literacy skills and attitudes necessary to become capable, connected and contributing members of our global society.
