*JME's Shared Definition of Equitable:
Equity Definition
Equity means each student-regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, dis-ability, language, immigration status, religion, gender identity, and sexual orientation- will have access to the opportunities, resources, and support they need. 


Belief Statement

Learning is a journey, traveled on a different path and at a different pace by each individual.

Basic education is the foundation which enables a student to know:

  • How to find out what needs to be known
  • How to process the information
  • How to apply the information

An effective teacher is one who: creates an environment which fosters academic, social and emotional growth; stays current with best practices; enables students to reach their potential and become productive citizens.

Schools promote partnerships between parents, students and community members that enrich the environment and embrace students in a "community of learners" as well as share in the responsibility for the student's learning.

Students should take responsibility for their own learning.

All members of the John Muir Learning Community must demonstrate respect for the rights and roles of each other.
