Our Mission

We believe that education is a life-long process of growth and development, which not only enables the individual learner to acquire needed information and skills, but also produces changes in his/her thinking, reasoning, and actions. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Shirley Schools will strive to create an environment in which all students will appreciate knowledge, become self-motivated learners, accept responsibility, become self-reliant, respect themselves and others, learn to practice good work ethics, and become a productive member of our society.
