Philosophy and Core Values

Mission and Vision

Corvian Community School develops the whole child and seeks to address the cognitive, emotional, social and physical needs of each student. The ultimate goal is to help students develop happy, healthy lives well-equipped for the future. 
Corvian Community School believes that every child can and will succeed in ways that reflect his or her own aptitudes, interests, and healthful lifestyle practices. Our mission is to implement the principles of Dr. Ernest Boyer’s Basic School Philosophy in order to provide an optimal learning environment in which:
  • Teachers and parents work together to create an inclusive community of learning
  • Students are intrinsically motivated as lifelong learners through hands-on teaching and an integrated curriculum
  • Students are encouraged to develop healthy lifestyle practices for social, emotional and physical health
  • Teachers are empowered to meet the needs of students on an individual basis
  • The Corvian Way guides all members of the Corvian Community. 

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness

Our Health and Wellness Focus: 
Corvian Community School is committed to the physical, emotional, and mental health of all of its students. By specifically teaching the Common Core standards within our curriculum, our hope is for students to become young adults who make healthy choices for their lives. In addition, teachers will model and teach children about healthy diets and the importance of exercise and good health habits. Attention is given to teaching children about healthy food choices, and to that end, parents are encouraged to pack healthy snacks and healthy lunches each day that include fruits, vegetables, and a good source of protein. Tennis shoes will be required for all students on a daily basis. Students will exercise each day during outside play and physical education classes. Parents are also encouraged to provide outside play in the afternoons and on weekends. 

Physical Fitness
Physical Fitness can improve student outcomes and build better brains. Students will have daily opportunities for exercise (indoor and outdoor) through classroom activity, outside play, and physical education classes. Students begin to develop space and body awareness and are engaged in activities that develop basic levels of strength, endurance, and flexibility. 

I Am Creed

By: Mark Scharenbroich

I am unique in the world,
I am capable of learning and growing,
I am a person who appreciates the differences in others,
I am talented and I share my talents,
I am unlike any other human being;
I am a person who pursues personal dreams,
I am an active participant in life,
I am committed to my values;
I am a one-of-a-kind human being and a celebration of life.
