Mission Statement

We, the staff of the Atchison Alternative School, believe that:

  • All students can and will learn;
  • Each student is an individual with specific needs;
  • Providing a safe educational environment for students and staff is our primary responsibility and, therefore, certain behaviors will never be tolerated at the program site regardless of the student’s background and/or disability;
  • We put into practice a consistent and reliable behavioral program for all students that assists students to make good decisions, to be respectful and safe, and to accept responsibility and accountability for their decisions;
  • Building strong and appropriate relationships with students is fundamental to achieving positive behavioral change and educational attainment;
  • Through our guidance, students will grow and adapt in order to meet the behavioral standards expected of our society;
  • Team involvement and collaboration is a critical component to the success of our program; including parents and students in making decisions relative to their academic and behavioral plans.
  • Students can meet the educational standards established by the State of Kansas.

Mission Statement

We believe all students can learn given an appropriate learning atmosphere. Therefore, students, staff, and parents together are responsible for establishing and maintaining a caring and supportive community dedicated to the academic, social and personal growth of all students.
