Kiley Prep at M. Marcus Kiley Campus focuses on student ownership of authentic instruction by prioritizing the following three dimensions of success: mastery of knowledge and skills, character, and high-quality student work. Our mission is to lift and leverage the highest quality instruction that will enable our students to go beyond surface level learning and engage in enduring understandings. All students will fully engage in grade-level standards aligned curriculum, take robust assessments to demonstrate mastery towards standards, and complete authentic tasks that prepare them for real world challenges and community contributions.
Our instructional vision values: critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, and character as the cornerstone of student success in high school, college, and career.
Race Equity Statement
“Equity and Anti-Racism" We recognize that, in today's diverse classrooms, students need knowledge and skills related to prejudice reduction, human rights awareness and collective action. Through anti-bias and social justice study we encourage our young people to challenge prejudice and learn how to be agents of change in their own lives. By engaging with our global and national history, and how it informs our attitudes and behaviors allows us to choose a world of equity and justice. We are committed to contradicting oppression and anti-racism providing civil and inclusive school communities where children are respected, valued and welcome participants. We are committed to a vision that embraces a vision of high-quality education with equitable excellent outcomes for all students as a formidable instrument in disrupting structural racism, oppression and bias. Educational equity means that all children experience:
1. Instruction that challenges, engages, and empowers learners
2. Access to standards-based, content-rich, culturally affirming curriculum
3. Explicit anti-racist discussion, practice, and action
4. School culture that fosters positive identity, belonging, agency, and purpose”
