Vision and Mission
Through positive nurturing and guidance the Rafer Johnson Community Day School is committed to promoting a safe learning environment and developing positive values and personal responsibilities by increasing appropriate social behavior and academic achievement. While nurturing students’ capacity to think skillfully and critically, we strive to deepen their commitment to prosaically values such as kindness, helpfulness, personal responsibility, empathy, honesty, self-control and respect for others – qualities we believe are essential to leading a balanced and productive lives. The fundamental goal is the return of the student to their comprehensive school setting.
To provide a safe, orderly, supportive, secure and motivating environment that is conducive to learning. To provide an academic program that will focus on high expectations of student’s behavior and achievement in all aspects of the school experience. To work collaboratively with elementary, middle, junior and high schools to assist in a smooth transition from one school setting to another. Rafer Johnson Community Day School program welcomes and encourages the participation, views, and advice of teachers, parents, staff, school administrators, community members and considers this information to promote the safety of our students, staff and community.
