(2) safe and secure;

(3) inquiry-based;

(4) student-directed;

(5) collaborative;

(6) interdisciplinary;

(7) rigorous and hands-on;

(8) embodying a culture of excellence and high expectations;

(9) environmentally conscious;

(10) offering strong connections to the local community and business;

(11) globally networked; and

(12) setting the stage for lifelong learning.
