Somers Central School District believes young children need to feel safe and secure. They need adults in their lives who are committed to their intellectual and emotional well-being. They need challenging, encouraging role models, and high standards for academic performance and behavior.
In order to prepare students with the knowledge, skills and habits of mind necessary to be responsible and productive citizens of the 21st century, Somers teachers, staff and administrators will: Advance critical thinking and thoughtful learning environments through the use of carefully planned instructional units, methodology, and assessments that ask students to demonstrate deep understanding and skillful application of knowledge in the areas of literacy, mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry and logical reasoning.
Somers Central School District adheres to the idea school should be places for exploration, creativity, risk-taking, and joy. Learning takes place throughout the day, and in and out of classrooms. Students need to be actively involved in meaningful, relevant and child-centered activities. Young children move as they learn, write as they learn, use language as they learn, and work cooperatively as they learn. Mistakes are seen as opportunities for learning.
