Mission Statement

We believe that everyone has a right to be treated with dignity and respect and that everyone can learn at different rates and in different ways. Thus, programs will be adjusted so that all have a chance to succeed and feel good about their accomplishments.

It is the responsibility of all to hold education in high priority to ensure that there exists an atmosphere where success may occur.

We believe that learning occurs best when communication is open and when the environment is non-threatening, conducive to creativity, exciting, and mutually supportive.

Statement of Purpose

As the Cannelton City Schools community works to prepare students for the 21st century, we will continue to re-examine our mission, goals and objectives. Our curriculum must continue to reflect the shared values of the school and the community. Our students will need skills to move into the highly advanced technological world. They will need to know how to work cooperatively, and solve and analyze problems. We will provide classroom and community opportunities for inquiry, creativity, and the demonstration of problem solving skills.
