PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS OF HUNT HIGH SCHOOL

 VISION & MISSION STATEMENT

 The primary vision of James Baxter Hunt, Jr., High School is to provide all students with a high-quality education leading to a high school diploma. It is our hope that this will prepare students to pursue whatever dreams they may have beyond their high school education. Through effective instructional leadership, sound teaching, an orderly environment and community involvement, we believe that our graduates will be able to realize their true potential with their diploma from Hunt High School.

 PHILOSOPHY

 The entire Hunt High School community believes that our first responsibility is to meet the individual needs of the student by strengthening their knowledge and skills and by enhancing their self-concepts. To achieve this goal, we must work closely with everyone by communicating the expectations while simultaneously working within the confines established by the local Board of Education.

  • All students can learn.

  • Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community are responsible for advancing the school’s mission.

  • Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs. And we will embrace diversity to make learning opportunities richer and more meaningful.

  • Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.
