We Not Me

  • We Not Me

    Lewis and Clark takes pride in the 'We Not Me' motto.  Students and staff work together in various ways to be successful. 

    What does it mean to be a Trailblazer?

    A Trailblazer is a pioneer, somebody who's willing to take risks and go on a path that isn't already there. They blaze a trail and leave a path for others.  Trailblazers have the personal qualities of strength, courage, and resilience, causing them to be relentless in their pursuits and embracing and learning from failures or setbacks. They are prepared so that they can perform their personal best to deliver what's required of them.

    Tradition of Excellence

    Lewis and Clark will hold true to the Tradition of Excellence and the commitment to ensure that everyone is treated with respect.  We promise to provide a positive and caring school experience so that students feel known, loved, and inspired.

    Lewis and Clark students and staff will portray the global citizenship portrayed through the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program.  The staff will work hard to provide rigorous, multidisciplinary instruction, contributing to the larger community.  Staff will strive to establish life-long learners who are productive citizens and will develop intercultural understanding and respect.

    Education is a joint venture between school and home.  Parents are a vital part of the Lewis and Clark community.
