Mission and Vision
Everything we do at One World Middle School is an experience in supporting our students to
achieve and to become an Ambassador of Change.
Our entire school community will know and articulate:
We operate at 212; in everything we do.
Our academic best depends on our personal best.
We prepare our students for high school, college and the world beyond.
One World Middle School @ Edenwald is a small school committed to understanding ‘who’ the child is in order to teach them. We are dedicated to creating a respectful environment where diversity is celebrated and individuals learn and flourish by developing character, intellect, wellness and a desire for lifelong learning. At our school, we will not only provide students with rigorous standard-based academics, we will also provide students with a place where learning is self-directed. Children will not only have an understanding of what they are learning but also why they are learning it. We enhance our learning by celebrating success, and acknowledging student and teacher accomplishments.
3 Core Beliefs
All students have the right to a quality and innovative standards based education that compels deep thinking. · All students have the right to know and be known in a safe welcoming environment. · All students have the right to be acknowledged as unique individuals who learn differently.
All students will graduate with the ability to be a personal leader, a community activist and an Ambassador of Change. Similar to the United Nations charter, all cultures are celebrated at One World Middle School, real issues are discussed, and we will provide an on-going platform for dialogue. Leaders, activists and ambassadors have a common thread in that they communicate clearly and appropriately for the audience and message. For these reasons the areas of writing, speaking and listening will be carefully nurtured. Students will understand the importance of being informed and well versed in taking a position. At One World, we will be guided by principles similar to the United Nations. We will seek to maintain a place of peace and security, to develop friendly relations among communities and to cooperate in solving problems and in promoting respect for human rights.
