SEEING THINGS WITH A SIMPLE VUE
The Simple VUE Academy is built upon a strong foundation of core principles, which serve as the pillars of our institution. These guiding principles are as follows:
When students have agency in their education, they become empowered to be in control. In our classrooms, we value student voice and choice. It means students can explore what they’re passionate about and share their ideas and opinions. Together, we make decisions and create lessons that matter to us.
We Are Stronger Together. Ubuntu, a bantu saying meaning “I am because we are.” We know that we can’t do everything alone. We rely on our community to support us as we learn and grow. We help each other on our journey to becoming the best we can be.
We take from Albert Bandura’s idea of “self-efficacy.” It means having confidence in ourselves and our abilities. When we believe in ourselves, we can make decisions and choose the right actions for ourselves. We have the power to take charge of our own learning and make choices that will help us succeed.
Show your support
We understand the value of your time, which is why we greatly appreciate the input of our community members and families regarding our school’s formation. The feedback we receive from surveys, including yours, has the power to directly impact the lives of thousands within our school community. By addressing educational challenges and beyond, your participation for just 7 minutes can make a significant difference in the lives of numerous individuals.
