Vision
 
Entering the classes of Dudley School will be a remarkable experience. In every classroom, teachers are presenting rigorous lessons and students are rising to the challenge. Dudley teachers hold students to high academic expectations, and are able to focus on effective instruction because every teacher enforces consistent classroom management expectations. Teachers deliver great lessons; students are engaged and on-task throughout the entire class period—there is a “buzz” of learning in class. Classes run fluidly with clear communication between students and teacher. Teachers proactively plan to avoid misbehavior. Consistency in application of Corrections drives student actions away from negative behaviors. Positive incentives encourage students to succeed. Academic success and opportunity are our greatest motivators. Teachers use school-wide systems, individual techniques, strong student-teacher relationships, and strong teacher-family relationships to promote and reinforce behavioral excellence. Students hold each other accountable and support each other in reaching ambitious goals. Students internalize the values taught at school and make good decisions even when no one is watching. Parents feel welcome at the school. Teachers know and feel that they are well supported by administration. Staff, teachers, students, and families work together to achieve a college-preparatory environment.
