Prescott School is committed to providing the highest quality education for all students. Prescott will offer each student the opportunity to develop competence in basic skills, encourage the creative potential of each individual through exposure of science and the arts, and develop students who are productive citizens both in school and the community. Prescott will work toward these goals while promoting a safe, orderly and comfortable learning environment. The Prescott community will celebrate diversity and promote pride in neighborhood, school and self.

The curriculum will be flexible, developmentally appropriate and adapted to the needs of learners.
