The Prescott VISION is to transform Prescott into an effective "Full-Service Community School". Students will be prepared for future access to college preparatory, real-world learning opportunities and diverse career pathways. The Prescott MISSION is to provide students with an orderly, trusting and caring environment, a vibrant integrated visual and performing arts program (including instruments, chorus, drumming, dance, drama and oratory) where high-quality teaching and experiential learning occur. Our students will be both challenged and guided as they develop the responsibility they need to become leaders in social activism while also contributing to the improvement of their local and global communities. 

Through equitable and engaging access to a rigorous curriculum aligned to the Common Core Content Standards (CCCS), we seek to produce inspired students who are healthy in body, mind and soul while embracing linguistic diversity and utilizing a lens of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP). We strive to ensure that our students will be academically successful; will develop and/or maintain cultural competence; and will develop a critical consciousness through which they challenge the status quo of the current social order for the betterment of their communities.
