Our Mission

75 Morton is a vibrant community that embraces the incredible diversity of our city.  Today’s society demands that we create students and citizens capable of working together and charting their own path to success in a world that is truly interconnected and provides almost infinite opportunity and possibilities.  If our students are a light that will shine on the world, our teachers aspire to be the current that sparks their imagination, that inspires their curiosity and passion, that powers their ambition and success.

 

When you walk through our doors you will find students that are engaged, inquisitive and who are supported through both accomplishment and failure.  You will find teachers who work tirelessly to find the path for success for each student, recognizing that each student is capable of thriving and recognizing that the path for each child may be different.  You will find an administration that is forward thinking, seeking out the most effective pedagogy and supporting teachers through professional development and collaborative planning. And you will find parents and families who take an active part in the community and their children’s learning, providing support to the school through time and resources.

If our students are a light that will shine on the world, our teachers aspire to be the current that sparks their imagination, that inspires their curiosity and passion, that powers their ambition and success.”
— Jacqui Getz, Principal

 

Inside our walls you will find students asking questions, performing experiments, getting messy, making mistakes, and starting again.  You will find inquisitive explorers that are supported on their journey and not afraid to go down their chosen path. You will find inquiry, thoughtfulness, and empathy.  You will find teachers that engage with their students guiding them in the direction of success and recognizing that many roads lead there.

 

When our students step out into the world they will not only be academically prepared to thrive in high school but will be equipped with the skills they need to flourish in a world that is diverse and filled with many ideas, approaches, and methodologies.  They will be able to envision their own future and able to meet the challenge and possibility of that future head on. They will be people who shine with accomplishment and promise, with passion and inquiry, with preparedness and aspiration.
