District Mission & Vision
To create a community of learners and leaders who demonstrate the 21st-century skills necessary to compete and thrive in a global society.
The Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District will enable students to demonstrate college and career readiness by displaying:
Strong Moral Character: Our students will display compassion and respect for others. Students will be confident yet humble in their approach. When faced with a choice, students will make responsible decisions.
Critical Thinking Skills: Our students will demonstrate the ability to solve complex problems and to do so by remaining open-minded to all possible outcomes.
Perseverance: Our students will proactively demonstrate an ability to put forth the extra effort in order to accomplish tasks. With a focus on both short and long term goals, students will demonstrate the ability to work hard, build stamina, and ultimately attain goals.
Cultural Awareness: Our students will be mindful of cultural differences based on the ever-evolving global community. Our students will be culturally sensitive and collaborate with a diverse population.
Innovation: Our students will demonstrate an ability to take calculated risks, be creative, and not be fearful of showing vulnerability.
