The mission of USEVS is to provide high quality educational opportunities through the use of traditional, experiential, and creative instructional practices to ensure that all students become inquisitive, lifelong learners with the 21st century skills necessary to be successful.
21st century skills encompass the six C’s: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical thinking, Connectivity, and Culture. The faculty and staff of USEVS are committed to providing educational experiences that will prepare students to lead successful lives after graduation, which includes incorporating technology responsibly, efficiently, and effectively.
Research supports that through personalized learning students are demonstrating significant gains in math and reading. Technology and online learning have proven to increase student engagement, positively affect performance, extend learning beyond the classroom, and promote critical thinking. Integrating technology across all curriculums will encourage individual learning and growth, create active learners, facilitate peer collaboration, and offer project based learning experiences as we prepare our children for the 21st century.
