The mission of the North Andover Public Schools is to cultivate a respectful community of engaged learners, insightful thinkers, and effective communicators. We do this by providing a vibrant learning community for students in grades preschool through 12. We are committed to ensuring that all of our students are provided an equal opportunity to an excellent education. Our hope is that the strong educational foundation our students receive will allow them to access numerous opportunities beyond our walls.
I hope that you will take a few moments to explore our website and learn more about our school district. Specifically, I would like to draw your attention to the district’s Strategic Plan. This document contains detailed information regarding the district’s three strategic objectives:
To ensure all students are provided equal access to an excellent education that encourages them to improve their capacity to think critically, communicate effectively, understand and manage emotions, and engage in academic risks.
To hire and develop excellent educators who utilize data, professional development and collaboration to continually adapt their practice to best meet the needs of all students.
To provide a consistent and rigorous curriculum that encourages all students to learn to the depth and distance of their abilities and leave our schools with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career and life.
