"The Southland School District strives to prepare its students to lead fulfilling lives as responsible citizens in today’s society. The learning environment will be inviting, respectful, supportive, inclusive, and flexible for student success. We believe that all learners must become: Inspired learners who are accountable for demonstrating, assessing and directing their present and life-long intellectual growth; Effective communicators who will use verbal, written, artistic and technological forms of communication to give, send and receive information; Productive workers who perform collaboratively and independently to create quality products and services that reflect personal pride and responsibility; Responsible citizens who have a global and multicultural perspective, and who take the initiative for improving the quality of life for self and others; Resourceful thinkers who independently and creatively strive to solve complex problems through reflection, appropriate risk taking, and critical evaluation."
