2Guiding Principles- Beliefs All students are capable of learning.Instruction should address content standards, common core state standards, student performance indicators, and the different learning styles of students, while making a connection to the real world and students’ interests.Assessments should be varied to meet the students’ levels of understanding, be available in different forms, and be used to evaluate the readiness of students to move to new material.The decision making process should include the viewpoints of faculty, staff, students, parents, and other community stakeholders.

5VisionA. Maceo Walker Middle School’s stakeholders visualize our school as a learning organization that supports and enhances the learning environment to meet the needs of all its students. A. Maceo Walker’s curriculum challenges the minds of all its students to develop critical, logical, high-order thinking skills to become life-long learners in an international and technical society.
6MissionThe mission of A. Maceo Walker Middle School is to equip all students with the necessary skills to master state mandated standards, to read with comprehension, to write with clarity, and to compute with accuracy while developing reasoning and problem-solving skills. Students will meet or exceed proficiency standards in their respective grade levels.
7Philosophy StatementChildren have an intrinsic desire to do well and behave appropriately; thus, it is our responsibility to provide the guidance and structure necessary for students to succeed in school. We believe every child has a right to learn in an environment free from fear, intimidation and disruptions; thus its is our responsibility to foster an educational climate where positive school wide behavior is expected and modeled daily. Students, parents, and all staff members have a pro-active responsibility to ensure students adhere to school-wide rules and procedures which maintain a safe, effective academic arena.
